Positioning Equipment


Used for vertical and horizontal translation and rotation of loads Acting as “muscle multipliers,” manipulators counterbalance the weight of a load so that an operator lifts a small portion (1%) of the load’s weight can be powered manually, electrically, or pneumatically.

Manipulator’s end-effector can be equipped with mechanical grippers, vacuum grippers, electromechanical grippers, or other tooling

Manipulators fill the gap between hoists and industrial robots: they can be used for a wider range of positioning tasks than hoists and are more flexible than industrial robots due to their use of manual control.
