What Do Industrial Manipulators Do?

Industrial manipulators are machines with a rigid manipulator arm designed to pick up large and heavy loads. The manipulator arm can perform complex manoeuvres whilst it has an object outside of its centre of mass.

They are like an extra set of hands that can provide precise movement to lift, lower, and rotate your component.

There are many types of industrial manipulators, including lift and rotate columns, overhead telescopic masts, pneumatic rope balancers, and balanced manipulator arms.

Why Are Industrial Manipulators Used?

Industrial manipulators solve some of the most challenging material handling problems. From the below, do any of these concern you in your current workplace? 

  • Products are heavier than 10kg
  • Products need to be moved regularly from one location to another
  • Product locations are not easily accessible for workers
  • Tasks are becoming more difficult for workers
  • Workers are performing repetitive tasks daily
  • There is an increase in backaches, sore joints, and other injuries
  • Efficiency is not as high as it could be


If you have any of the above issues in your working environment, you will benefit from investing in a materials handling solution. You will have access to expert engineers that are passionate about helping you improve the health and safety of your workers.

You can depend on outstanding, professional customer service from a team who will understand your requirements and recommend a solution that fits your needs and constraints.

Handling Concepts' Industrial Manipulator Solutions

You can depend on almost 30 years of experience and entrust skilled engineers to help you improve the productivity and health and safety of your workers.

With access to a range of Handling Concepts’ industrial manipulators, your exact specifications will provide you with a tailored solution, and a choice of extensive options.

Balanced Manipulator Arms

Balanced Manipulator Arms

Balanced manipulator arms are machines with a rigid manipulator arm designed to lift large and heavy loads. They are manually operated, which allows smooth, precise actions for manoeuvring components.

The ability of balanced manipulator arms to move components outside their centre of mass allows optimal control of the load regardless of their size and weight. The manipulators take the strain of the load away from the operator, and can provide precise grip and movement for lifting, lowering, and transporting products to exactly where you want them.

Lifting and Rotate Columns Duplicates for Assembly Line

Lift and Rotate Columns

Lift and rotate columns compromise a column with a fixed base and a gripping system that can rotate loads 180 degrees. The gripping system can be raised and lowered, allowing the machine to function alongside assembly lines.

An advanced material handling solution, lift and rotate columns provide a safe and effective way to manipulate very large components, and can lift loads from 100kg to 10 tons. The fixed position of the columns and PLC control allow distance between the worker and the components that are being rotated, further improving safety.

Handling Concepts Overhead Telescopic Mast Material Handling Solution

Overhead Telescopic Masts

Overhead telescopic masts are columns which provide vertical lifting for products. They can be raised or lowered to any height desired within their range of vertical movement.

They have proven to be a safe, robust, and effective solution for safely lifting heavy components weighing up to 800kg. Overheard telescopic masts 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 allowing rotation and other complex manoeuvres.

Handling Concepts Pneumatic Rope Balancer Material Handling Solution

Pneumatic Rope Balancers

Pneumatic rope balancers are lightweight articulated crane arms which can raise, and lower lifting attachments or grippers suspended from wire ropes. They are manually operated, allowing smooth, precise actions for lifting and manoeuvring products, creating optimal control of the load.

The ‘weightless’ experience of pneumatic rope balancers makes them a standout piece of material handling equipment. Their ability to provide effortless control and lifting is ideal for reducing worker fatigue and improving the efficiency of the production line.
