Counterbalanced manipulator features working radius of nearly 10 feet.


The Famatec Friendly ergonomic manipulator is fully counterbalanced and handles up to 1,100 pounds. With a working radius of almost 10 feet, the pneumatically powered manipulator allows an operator to effortlessly suspend, rotate, tilt and transfer loads with precision. The unit is adaptable to the user's preferred working height and position to progressively place the load during assembly, suspend it for further processing or transfer it from one location to another. When suspended, the load can be moved manually or rotated 90 degrees under power. An intuitive control console adjusts the counterbalance force, rotation, tilt, braking and parking. Mounting options include column, overhead, tracks, wheeled, or with a free standing, fork-truck transportable base. Haeco, 513-722-1030, materialhandling.
