Manipulators

Industrial Manipulators

Industrial manipulators are pneumatically-balanced manual lift assists. They allow an operator to lift and position a part as if it were an extension of his/her hands.

Manipulators are the high-speed, high-performance manual material-handling solution.

Manipulators render the load virtually weightless from the point of view of the operator. Normally, there are no up/down pushbuttons. The operator can concentrate on moving the load quickly without pressing buttons.

Unlike a crane, a manipulator is able to support a load that is offset from the axis of the end effector.

While the manipulator arm is stocked on the shelf, the end effector must be custom-designed for the part to be lifted.

However, we mass-manufacture and stock end effector components, such as handlebars, grippers, bearing assemblies, and rotation units, all of which have been previously researched and tested.

End Effectors

No manipulator is complete without an end effector. The end effector consists of handlebars, gripper and rotation components. The cost of the end effector is roughly equal to the cost of the manipulator arm.

Manipulators... 

  • Can reach into enclosed spaces (such as a vehicle)
  • Can reach under obstructions
  • Offer greater placement precision than is possible with a crane
  • Generally offer faster cycle times than cranes
