Manipulator Arms and Rigid Column Lift Videos

Easy Manipulator Arm (EMA) with Pneumatic Gripper

Our Easy Manipulator Arm (EMA) and a pneumatic grip tool was designed and built to lift and grip large power line electrical insulators. The air powered manipulator arm features precision bearings, 360-degree rotation at the mast, and 360-degree rotation at the secondary arm. The grip tool features a steel and aluminum powder coated frame, ergonomic handle bar with up/down, grip/release controls, rotation brake controls, adjustable grip jaws, and 10 degrees of horizontal adjustment allowing alignment of the insulator into a crimping machine.

Hydraulic Manipulator Arm (HMA) for Sheet Metal

Ergonomic Partners manufactured this 600-pound capacity hydraulic articulating arm to lift various length metal sheets. The HMA features proportional up/down controls, operator controlled brakes, and a safety system to prevent the metal sheets from being released in mid-air. The end effector is an adjustable vacuum gripper tool for different lengths of sheet metal.

Machine Mounted Manipulator Arm for Loading a Press

The precision bearings and the design of this arm allows for smooth and precise movements in very tight work areas. The arm stays in zero gravity float mode when loaded or unloaded; and uses pneumatic cylinders for lifting and gripping the parts.

Lightweight Manipulator Arm (LMA)

The lightweight design of this arm allows for fast and easy movement. This arm has optional air brakes that lock the unit in place when needed. This arm uses air to power pneumatic cylinders in order to do the lift.

Triple Articulated Manipulator (TAM)

Our triple articulated manipulator is perfect for extremely tight work areas. The manipulator arm and the end effector can be customized to fit your material handling application.

Reach In Manipulator Arm (RIA) with Electromagnet Gripper

The Reach In Arm (RIA) is ideal for very tight work areas with low headroom. This arm is customized with 4 floating electromagnets and a battery backup in the event of a power loss. The arm uses precision bearings for smooth precise movement and has operator controlled air powered rotation brakes.

Portable Zero Gravity Tool Arm for Grinder

Our in-house team of engineers’ custom designed and built this unique tool arm for grinding tall parts. Our team machined a one-of-a-kind sleeve bearing to allow this unique grinder to rotate and move 360 degrees on all 3-axis. The tool arm is articulating and has a wide range of movement. The secondary arm and has 50 inches of vertical travel and keeps the tool in a zero gravity position at all times. The mast for the arm is mounted to a portable base with locking casters.

Pneumatic Manipulator Arm for Bearings

This custom pneumatic manipulator arm lifts bearings. The grip tool has a momentary 360-degree rotation and the arm has brakes that lock the arm in the desired position.

Low Profile Arm (LPA)

The low profile and lightweight design of this arm allows for fast and easy movements in very tight work areas. This arm can be customized with our floating handle to prevent the operator from bending down. The LPA uses pneumatic cylinders for lifting and a vacuum gripper to grab material. The arm uses precision bearings for smooth precise movement and can be fitted with operator controlled air powered rotation brakes.

Air Operated Magnet Manipulator for Wire Spools

Air Operated Magnet Manipulator to grip multiple wire spools and load onto an unwinding machine. The rigid vertical lift cylinder is designed to lift up to 500 pounds of creels at once.
