Handling Description: The application calls for a way to handle large window panels being positioned for installation onto a cab. Some panels are in the vertical orientation and some are stored horizontally.
Problem: How to safely pitch heavy panels, up to 110 degrees, up to 150 lb., varying in size, from vertical to horizontal and rotate through the pitched horizontal axis to line up holes for installation.
*?Large (33' wide) work cell
*?Part locating rotation
*?Handling a wide variety of parts
