Productivity

Equipois's zeroG arm dramatically boosts productivity by solving common manufacturing problems caused by fatigue and exertion:

 

Common Manufacturing ProblemsThe zeroG Solution
High Cost of injuries from using tools or holding parts
Eliminate the most common causes of injuries: overexertion and repetitive stress
 
Workers needing breaks or rotations due to fatigue
Workers can work consistently throughout their shift without fatigue
 
Using more than one worker for a task due to the weight of a tool or part
Allow one person to do what had been a two-person operation
 
Tired workers damaging product or tools, or hurting themselves
Give workers greater control and precision reducing mistakes and scrap
 
Being forced to use lighter/less powerful tools than ideally suited for the job
Allow workers to use more powerful tools, substantially boosting throughput
 
High energy costs of air, powered or hydraulic lift assists
Reduce energy consumption from powered arms...with better performance

Automotive Assembly

Challenge

  • Awkward fastening task requiring two workers

zeroG solution

  • Using zeroG, a top auto manufacturer turned a two person operation into a one-person task

Customer benefit

  • Annual savings of $140,000 and payback in under a month

 

 
 
 

 

Turbine Manufacturing

Challenge

  • Fatigue and injuries from holding a 14 lb. finishing tool

zeroG solution

  • zeroG helped a world-leading manufacturer float the tool as if weightless

Customer benefit

  • 50% increase in throughput, elimination of injuries

 

 
 
 

 

Aerospace Components

Challenge

  • Forced to use a smaller tool due to injury risk

zeroG solution

  • zeroG allowed an aerospace supplier to use a larger grinder safely

Customer benefit

  • Annual savings of $40,000 and anual ROI over 300%
