Manipulators

Strongarm™ Manipulators help your company become more efficient by allowing one employee do the same lifting task that previously took two or more people to accomplish. O.S.H.A. regulations recommend that no employee should lift any product over 40 pounds and bend, twist or reach with it over 30 inches. Strongarm™ Manipulators allow you to meet O.S.H.A. standards and allow your company to replace ineffective equipment with a safer, more ergonomic solution.

A manipulator, unlike other types of lifts, has the capacity to pick up, turn and rotate items. Each manipulator is designed for the application and can simulate the motion of a human arm. The gripping mechanism can be vacuum, electric, pneumatic or even magnetic. The configurations are nearly endless.

Common applications are:

  • Installation of automotive components such as windshields and seats
  • Handling curved items such as tubes, such as paper and films and even loading them onto
  • production machines
  • Handling and dumping of bags, large totes or sacks
  • Picking up multiple items, such as buckets of paint or cartons
  • Handling tires, batteries or automotive components without flat surfaces

Strongarm™ Manipulators will:

  • Reduce fatigue and injuries
  • Reduce labor costs
  • Improve ergonomic working conditions
  • Help comply with safety standards
  • Increase productivity
  • Be easy to use and maintain
  • Facilitate true job rotation
