Manual handling equipment is a very broad term which covers almost any manually operated equipment used to lift, lower, push, pull, transport etc. Being specialists in bespoke material handling solutions, there is no application where handling equipment can’t assist.
Balance manipulators utilise pneumatic cylinders to counteract and match the weight of a product. The upward force supplied by the cylinders is equal and opposite to the downward force caused by the product. This means the force applied by the operator is only the force required to move the arm. This results in the product feeling weightless.
As the stress is placed upon the equipment, there is no physical strain on the operator. The job is no longer taxing on the body, so the operator will have more energy, more motivation and the overall morale will improve as the job becomes easier and quicker.
With specialist handling equipment, your process becomes more efficient, quicker and safer. With a more efficient system, you work more productively, therefore producing higher profits.
A quicker system results in greater throughput and targets are met earlier. A safer system sees reduced absences and higher motivation, increasing your staff’s drive as well.
