New loading system for the Navarra Group was designed at INEGI

24 January 2023
The Navarra Group, part of the aluminum industry, challenged INEGI to develop a solution to make the handling of aluminum profile transport baskets more reliable and safer. From this challenge, a new mechanical system was born, completely customized to the company, and which is already in use.

The solution developed is "exclusively mechanical and contains a unique «hook», adaptable to the different characteristics of the baskets, with different lengths and types of fastening, for dowelling and undocking specific dowels", says José Cunha, responsible for the project at INEGI.

"It was a great challenge to create a purely mechanical action rig. But with our experience, in particular, skills in mechanical design, numerical simulation and structural analysis, we were able to meet all of the Navarra Group's requirements and contribute to making the its operation more efficient and safer", he adds.

In this project, a visual signaling system positioned on the tops of the equipment was also developed. This signaling moves in accordance with the mechanical system in order to ensure that the technician can see, from any location, the status of the operation. This innovation in signaling guarantees greater safety inside the factory, thus fulfilling the objective that motivated the Navarra Group to look for a more effective solution to reduce the risk of accidents due to human error.
