ErgoControl Handles Big Jobs

Ergotronix Work Positioner Handles Big Jobs

Our ErgoControl programmable work positioner handles big jobs and may well be the heavyweight champ of the industry.  A recent article explained how it can safely lift up to 17.600 pounds — almost NINE TONS, and shows how the ErgoControl handles big jobs!  You can learn more at this page.

ErgoControl-1500-Work Positioner Handles Big Jobs

As you can see in the image above, the ErgoControl has a unique L-shaped arm which allows it to access workloads from every angle. This is even the case when it is underneath and upside-down!

If your workloads are less than, 17,600 pounds, then you can choose from any of our workload classes! For Ergotronix’s programmable work positioner in the three-axis mode, you can choose a class from 330 pounds to 13,300 pounds!

Here We Grow Again! Ergotronix Announces New Florida Factory Opened

Ergotronix is growing once again. Just a few weeks after moving our corporate headquarters to 15 Old Sherman Turnpike in Danbury, a new Florida factory opened in the Sarasota/Bradenton area, in Manatee County.  It’s a beautiful facility and we are excited to be moving into such a dynamic and fast-growing economic region.  The building is located at 6408 Parkland Drive in Sarasota, very close to I-75 and Routes 41 and 301, so it’s very convenient.  Our CEO, Earl Hagman, says that “Our business has continued to grow in the Southeast, and by being closer to our southern customers, we can better meet their needs, while reducing transportation time and costs.”  Here’s a picture of the factory.

Have Explosion Proof Work Areas? Introducing a New Pneumatic Ergo-I Lift Column Perfect for Your Needs

Ergotronix Inc. is devoted to the continual refinement, improvement, and extension of our product lines in order to facilitate more and better material handling and work positioning applications for our customers.  An example of this constant pursuit of improvement is the introduction of a new pneumatic Ergo-I lift column, powered by compressed air.  The pneumatic Ergo-I is now safe for use in Explosion Proof work areas, workspaces where devices powered by electricity or other energy sources are prohibited for safety purposes.

The new pneumatic Ergo-I is every bit as versatile and useful as its electric-powered predecessor.  It fits into a small footprint, can lift up to 400 pounds safely, and requires zero operator strain to do the work via foot pedals or hand pendant.  An added benefit of the new pneumatic power version is that two adjustable flow controls are standard, and these allow for an extremely rapid cycle time, which can improve efficiency and work flow.  Engineers seeking to equip an explosion proof work area owe it to themselves to consider the specifications and capabilities of the new pneumatic Ergo-I.  You can learn more details about the new explosion-proof Ergo-I in this article, and learn more about the Ergo-I here.

Our Customer LA-CO Solved a Handling Problem with the ErgoTranz

LA-CO is a leader in the specialty chemical and marking sectors, and because of that, sometimes their employees have to handle hazardous loads, including chemicals.  They had  a very particular lifting problem in a very tight space in their factory in Illinois.  Two managers used web searches to find a solution, and they found the answer at ergotechinc.com.  The ErgoTranz needed to be customized with grippers to lift heavy pots of hot liquid, and it needed a shorter mast to fit under a low ceiling, but that was no problem for our engineers.  Now it is getting the job done.  You can get more details on how the ErgoTranz can help solve your problems here.
