The most complete range of industrial manipulators nowadays on the market
Scaglia INDEVA offer the most complete range of industrial manipulator on the market, including both traditional pneumatic control manipulators and state of the art electronic manipulators, better referred to as INDEVA.
Thirty years experience in the design and manufacturing of material handling solutions that comply with all latest regulations and advices on ergonomics and safety in the manual load handling.
Scaglia INDEVA is therefore able to satisfy industry demand for countless material handling applications as well as to meet the ever growing industry demand for more safety and ergonomics together with more productivity.
Scaglia Indeva is the only material handling systems manufacturer offering Intelligent Devices for Handling , or INDEVA.
The INDEVA are an evolution of the industrial manipulators: they are intelligent, electronically controlled manual load handling systems.
Liftronic series manipulators are INDEVA, state of the art evolved industrial manipulators.
Liftronic series electronic manipulators are ideal anywhere speed, fluid movement and exact positioning of the load are required.
Scaglia INDEVA supply also traditional pneumatic controlled industrial manipulators in order to satisfy demand for systems suitable for applications in controlled environment with danger of explosion, according to the ATEX Regulations.
PN series manipulators are pneumatic control traditional industrial manipulators.
PN series pneumatic manipulators can be designed according to the ATEX regulations as per the EU Directives 94/9 regarding applications in controlled environments with danger of explosion, classified classes 1 and 2 (Gas).
WHY SCAGLIA INDEVA SUPPLY INDEVA
Scaglia INDEVA has been the first Company in the world to apply electronics to industrial manipulators in 1970 and today is world leader in the design and production of INtelligent DEVices for hAndling with its exclusive INDEVA.
An INDEVA enables operators to lift and manoeuvre naturally, as if it were an extension of their own arm.
An INDEVA contributes to productivity increase and helps reduce the costs of product damage and minimize work-related injuries.
For high value products that require rapid, repetitive movement an INDEVA is the safest and most productive lifting device available as it gives the responsiveness and flexibility of a human operator plus the power of a machine; it is therefore the perfect solution for quick, repetitive motions and slow, precise load placements.
Compared to traditional pneumatic control manipulators the INDEVA offers countless advantages that produce:
more ERGONOMICS, more SAFETY and more PRODUCTIVITY.
- Auto-weight sense and automatic load balancing
By means of a microprocessor based electronic device the system automatically and instantly balances the load weight. The INDEVA not only automatically balances the load weight (auto-balancing feature), but it also senses the load weight continually, adjusting the balancing accordingly as the weight changes (auto-weight sense feature). Thanks to this feature the operator can handle loads with varying weights (e.g.: drum, cases, bags etc.. emptying) or loads with different sizes and weights without interrupting his handling operations for adjusting balancing by means of push buttons or pressure regulator.
The operator can handle loads in a natural and intuitive way almost forgetting he's using a machine.
Traditional pneumatic control manipulators, including those called auto-balancing, balance the weight as laod is lifted, but do not automatically and continually sense the weight and do not automatically adjust balancing as weight varies;
Counter balancing is much slower because it takes much longer for pneumatic signalling, compared to electronic signal, to travel around the circuits.
- High precision in load positioning
The INDEVA gripping tool doesn't overtravel, nor bounce and doesn't require lots of little corrective movements to reach the required position, as it occurs with pneumatic controlled manipulators. The float mode function (hands on the load)
allows operators to perform precision placement tasks with their hands on the load itself for maximum control with no need to use handles or to press buttons; this mode is very useful especially when load has to be placed in a restricted area or with delicate loads that could be affected by typical bounces of pneumatic control manipulators.
- More ergonomics and effortless handling
The fingertip control mode by means of an in line force sensing handle, provides immediate response to the operator's moves up and down. This drastically reduces inertia and allows the system to operate as an extension of the operator's arm. The effort required to the operator for moves along the Z axis is therefore constant and almost null; this feature together with their ergonomic design make the INDEVA the only available material handling solution that really comply with the strictest regulations and directives on ergonomics and safety in the manual load handling.
- Quick movements
The INDEVA respond swiftly, yet smoothly to human touch, winning inertia both during acceleration and braking, amplifying operator movements. The operator notices no time lapse between the machine sensing and its response, which is impossible with pneumatic control manipulators
- Greater visibility and ease of maneuvrability
Lifting tools used for the INDEVA are much lighter and more compact than those used for traditional manipulators and allow for greater visibility and ease of maneuvrability.
The Liftronic Easy series INDEVA gripping tools can be equipped with a quick coupling device, by means of which it is possible to change quickly and easily different toolings and handle different types of loads with only a 15 seconds work interruption.
Modifications to handling parameters or tooling functions are very easy to carry out via electronic software. This is especially important in case of special toolings with multiple functions.
