Visumatic Launches New Power Assist Arm Feeding and Driving System

Visumatic announces their newest product, the Visumatic VPA Ergonomic Power Assist Arm, in their line of automatic screwfeeding and driving assembly systems.

Visumatic positions their systems as ‘Automation Solutions’, because every system is designed and built in answer to challenges from the manufacturing workplace. The increasing demand for protecting workers by improving ergonomics resulted in the development of the VPA Power Assist Arm. The VPA is designed to take pressure off the operators elbow, significantly decreasing the risk of carpel tunnel syndrome. With decreased risk to operators, also comes minimized workers compensation claims and higher operator productivity.

The VPA’s advantage is that the operators hand is closer to the work plane. It monitors and releases the drive-down force at pre-determined torque value and protects operators by powering the downward stroke during assembly. The arm is also available in a non-powered version which absorbs the torque reaction and supports the weight of the tooling.

According to Visumatic President Jeff Cunningham, “Visumatic has grown by responding to our customers needs. The marketplace required a screwfeeding and driving system supported by a powered arm for greater ergonomic assistance.” Any operator, regardless of ability or strength, can effectively and efficiently drive fasteners with this assembly. “One customer told us that even one of their pregnant operators could use this powered driver with no loss of productivity’ said Cunningham.

Visumatic is a family owned and operated business located in Lexington, Kentucky. All systems are designed and built in house at our corporate headquarters, and offered through a distributor network in the US, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
