Ferris Wheel Positioners - F Series

The Kyrus Ferris Wheel Positioner (Also known as “the water wheel”) allows parts to be rotated over the centre axis.

This cost effective positioner is ideal for system builders and end users, its design allows flexibility to change swing diameters and face plate distances easily.

The robot stand design locks the robots firmly back to the positioner for greater stability.

Our flexible tooling drive modules allow simple capacity changes, giving the customer the flexibility if there is a product change to the system at some point in the future.

If the customer’s application requires centres that are in excess of 3 metres and the fixtures are a small diameter, this system provides the flexibility that can save space over a centre mount or turntable design, giving further flexibility where smaller robots can be integrated when comparing to conventional turntable systems.
