What Is A Mobile Manipulator?

Mobile manipulators are like an industrial manipulator but are set on castors to allow them to become a portable material handling solution. They have the same rigid manipulator arm but are scaled down to make them transportable. They are ideal for moving and positioning loads with no travel restrictions.

Onboard, there can be compressors, air tanks or batteries to allow complete freedom when moving. They can also utilise existing air, mains power sources, or be manually operated. The manipulator’s arm provides the ability to lift and hold heavy loads. They can make complex manoeuvres whilst holding an object outside of its centre of mass. They are often used for more efficient and safe handling of bulk items.

Why Are Mobile Manipulators Used?

Mobile manipulators are ideal for providing readily available lifting equipment for your workers. They provide a tool to remove the burden of laborious manoeuvres such as gripping, lifting, holding, and rotating loads.

They are portable and also provide a cost-effective solution for covering sizeable areas. They can keep up with fast-moving productions processes seen in pick and packing applications.

They remove the main constraints of a traditional industrial manipulator, allowing the worker to move and create space for the load in the desired location.

The Benefits Of Using A Mobile Manipulator

Mobile manipulators can increase productivity and reduce injuries in the workplace. They can benefit your workers and business and can help in various ways:

  • Lifting something too heavy for a person to handle manually.
  • Raising an item to a location that is not easily accessible for the person.
  • Moving an item to a location that is across a long distance.
  • Reducing the risk of Musculoskeletal injuries and repetitive strain injury through incorrect manual handling.
  • Avoid employee fatigue.
  • Improving the efficiency of the production line.
  • Reducing the risk of workplace accidents and damage to products


Mobile manipulators are a brilliant choice for construction, warehouses, and production lines because of their combination of speed and precision.
