The solution

Pronomic’s solution a Lift & Drive 130P, equipped with a Squeeze&Turn for handling to eliminated all manual handling during refilling of the machine. Additinally a special tool was built to support the maintenance work of the machine.

The solution involved a customized, three-in-one trolley system. Besides a standard Squeeze&Turn trolley for managing heavy paint buckets, Pronomic developed a specialized tool for dismounting paint brushes and unloading pallets.

The challenge:

Välinge required equipment to assist their employees with heavy and repetitive lifting, often from difficult positions. The objective was to significantly lessen the physical strain on employees and minimize the risk of injuries and accidents. The limited space in the production area necessitated a compact solution. Ideally, the lifting equipment would perform multiple tasks, ranging from unloading pallets to dismounting machine components.

The solution:

The primary task was the lifting and emptying of heavy paint buckets into a production machine. A Pronomic Lift&Drive trolley was selected for this task's efficient execution. Outfitted with a standard Pronomic Squeeze&Turn lifting tool, the trolley removed the need for manual handling during the machine's refilling process.
A customized solution was necessary for the additional task of dismounting a large machine paint brush for maintenance. In collaboration with the Välinge team, Pronomic engineered a specialized tool that could be easily attached to the trolley using the Squeeze&Turn. This new tool, with its rail, guide, and hook, facilitated the paint brush's easy removal from the machine. It also addressed the pallet unloading task, as the rail and hook allowed for straightforward access over the pallets. When not in use, the tool could be conveniently hung on a wall.

Benefits:

Pronomic's modular, multi-purpose solution eradicated the manual handling risks at the Välinge site. It also conserved time and labor, as tasks that traditionally required two people could now be performed by a single employee, all within the confines of the available space.
