What Are Balanced Manipulator Arms?

Balanced manipulator arms are machines with a rigid manipulator arm designed to lift large and heavy loads. They are pneumatically powered and manually operated, allowing smooth, precise actions for manoeuvring components. This system is low effort and feels weightless to the operator allowing them to lift and manoeuvre bulk loads with minimum labour.

The ability of balanced manipulator arms to move components outside of their centre of mass creates optimal control of the load, regardless of its size or weight. The manipulator takes the strain of the load from the operator and can provide precise grip and movement for lifting, lowering, and transporting components precisely where you want them.

Balanced manipulator arms have a wide range of applications across all industries and can be supplied as a lift-only device, or as part of a turnkey solution with a bespoke gripper to allow rotations and more complex manoeuvres.

For your tricky lifting and handling application and to find out if a balanced manipulator arm is the right solution for you, contact us today for a detailed assessment to help you solve your material handling problem.

Why Are Balanced Manipulator Arms Used?

A staple material handling solution, balanced arm manipulators are used by many industries, such as automotive, construction and rail. With the ability to lift loads of up to 800kg and move in a wide radius, they provide an efficient and safe lifting solution.

The low effort operation of balanced manipulator arms makes them standout pieces of material handling equipment. Their ability to provide effortless control and lifting is ideal for reducing worker fatigue and improving efficiency in the workplace.

When combined with lifting accessories like bespoke grippers, they further improve manual handling of workers by removing laborious tasks.
