ATR-Strothmann Shuttle and Lifter
Slated for DaimlerChrysler Destacker

Wednesday, January 7, 2004
 
The MagShuttle SRE 2/300 linear-induction-motor shuttle and lifter, from ATR-Strothmann, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, has been ordered for use in a DaimlerChrysler destacking system, to be installed this spring. The system, being integrated by High Production Technologies, Wauseon, OH, reportedly is the first destacking system in North America to use linear-induction-motor shuttle technology. The destacking system will handle both steel and aluminum blanks—in payloads to 330 lb.--at press-line speeds of 17 strokes/min. Also, the system offers automatic end-effector changeover in between die changes. ATR-Strothmann manufacturers linear and rotary robotic components and systems used in various material-handling processes. For more, visit www.strothmann.com.
