Manipulator of tin cans

In this project it was required to handle metal cans during one of the phases of their packaging process.

For this purpose, a hoist and a magnetic plate were installed, which grabs the cans when the hoist descends. To remove the cans from the magnetic plate, a pair of pneumatic cylinders was used.

Both the control panel of the hoist and the cylinders are mounted on a handlebar because the cans have to be taken from a point away from the operator.

The entire system moves along a monorail.
