Pivot bearings

The lifting axis ZH90 can be turned by 360 degrees with optional pivot bearings in the ceiling trolley. This enormously expands its possible uses.

Rotating latch / indexing

The lifting axle can latch and remain in a pre-defined position. This is a useful function when accuracy is needed, e.g. for screwing.

Bild

Rotating stop

Different rotating stops limit rotation of the lifting axis ZH90 as needed. This prevents collisions with other objects.

Trolley drive

The lifting axis can be pneumatically or electrically moved in the x- or y-directions at the rail system. This makes work easier and permits partially or fully automated operation.

Braking & indexing
Bild
Bild

X / Y-brake

An X / Y-brake brakes the lifting axis ZH90 in the rail system and holds it in place. The brakes can also be used to maintain a pre-defined position / parking position.

Bild
Bild

Z-brake

Brakes the lifting axis in the Z-direction. This is an additional safety feature in case of sudden pressure loss or hose break, since the column is decelerated in the Z-direction.

Z-latch

The system can be latched in defined heights. This is particularly useful when accuracy is important, as is the case when screwing on components of any kind.

Lifting limit

Limits the lifting stroke in the Z-direction according to the customer's needs. This provides optimal support and guidance for the worker. Repeat accuracy increases.

Measuring & querying
Bild
Bild

Height query

Pre-defined functions can be locked or cleared depending on height. This increases safety and makes operation easier.

Cycle counter

The cycle counter counts the individual work cycles to support monitoring of processes and compliance with maintenance intervals.

Remote maintenance module

(Not available for strictly pneumatic control.)

The GSM module permits remote maintenance and quick error analysis by Zeilhofer. All parameters can be analysed without inspection on site.

Measuring system

(Not available for strictly pneumatic control.)

Pre-defined functions can be locked or cleared depending on height. This increases safety and makes operation easier.

This further relieves the worker when the lifting axis ZH90 moves automatically to the pre-defined height in the different work steps.

Safety

Bild

Safety valve

The special safety valve developed for the lifting axis ZH90 is combined with a corresponding control to prevent accelerated movement at sudden power supply and / or power drop.

Miscellaneous

Extension

The optional extension makes it possible to reach areas that are difficult to access under interfering contours, or submersion into work areas.

Bild

Synchronous extension

If installation space is limited and the simple extension has no room, a synchronous extension will solve the issue. Double telescoping makes for a space-saving system without reducing smooth operation.

Double stroke

The double stroke expands the stroke of the lifting axis ZH90 by up to 100%. Large lifting heights can be implemented even under very low ceilings.

Control
Bild
Bild

Pneumatic control

Use of pneumatic energy permits intuitive and safe mastery of daily tasks. Vertical movements can be performed balancing, i.e. without button actuation.
Bild
Bild

Electropneumatic control

The advantages of the pneumatic control are preserved. An electropneumatic control also makes it possible to implement partially and fully automatic processes.
Bild
Bild

Electrical control

The purely electrical control makes compressed air as a medium entirely unnecessary. Even the heaviest loads, partially and fully automated processes can be implemented without problems.

Control options

Balancer control

For nearly weightless movement of loads. The system switches to load mode as soon as the load has been collected securely. The vertical movement can be performed easily.

Movement up and down

The vertical movement of the lifting axis ZH90 is controlled with a button. An additional button accelerates the movement. Small movements are possible without pushing any buttons.

Automatic weight determination

Parts with different weights are moved vertically by the push of a button. Once the part is in the air, a button switches to balancer control.

Automatic weight adjustment

(Not available for strictly pneumatic control.)

The automatic weight adjustment automatically weighs the products to be moved after gripping. Vertical movement is now easily possible, just as when using balancer control. It can be supported with the push of a button.

Safety control

The load can only be released when the gripper is in a defined end position, or if an index clears the action.
