Investment Casting Wax Tree Positioner
Manual wrist, manual linear captivator, manual trunion and soft tread casters
200lb [91 kg] wax trees
A jet turbine manufacturer needed a method to manipulate investment casting wax trees. The lift’s three degrees of freedom (vertical travel and two
axes of rotation) afford the operator to ergonomically access all faces of the wax tree during construction. A set of soft tread casters protect the delicate wax trees from vibrations during transport.
