Hydraulic Manipulator Arm (HMA) for Sheet Metal

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.

Low Profile Arm (LPA)

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.

Lightweight Manipulator Arm (LMA)

Portable Zero Gravity Tool Arm for Grinder

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.
