KAMAZ truck production modernized

This is an electronic manipulator that works on the flywheel setting. Unlike the crane previously installed here, the new manipulator, which was purchased as part of the Ergonomic Workplaces project, is characterized by smooth operation and high movement speed.

“Control takes place with the help of a touch pen, no more pressing a button,” the newspaper Reis is quoted as saying by the head of the technical department of reinforcement and assembly production, Alexander Maksimov. – The worker just grabs the handle – and the jib crane moves. This cut the installation time of parts on the conveyor in half.”

The flywheels that the manipulator moves weigh 40 kg each. There was a time when they were moved and installed by hand, then a crane appeared, which was not very fast and accurate.

“The installation of the manipulator has greatly facilitated the work of the workers. The crane is ergonomic, easy to operate, and automatically adjusts to the weight of the load to be lifted. We also gained in charging pace – from one engine it’s about five seconds. The crane also has a suitable arm length, about two meters, and a rotation angle of 360 degrees,” says Alexander Maksimov.

The same manipulators may appear on other sections of the conveyor, but only after successful testing of those already installed.
