Ergonomic Lift Assist

With your operators' safety at the forefront of our designs, we take pride in our ability to answer your material handling needs with an ergonomic lift-assist system. Our engineered manipulator arm systems range in the capacity of 30 lbs up to a massive 10,000 lbs. Let us do the heavy lifting for you.

When implement correctly, a list assist solution can improve the safety of a manual process, reduce fatigue for the operator, and reduce the potential for damage to the tool/product. Combined, these benefits will result in more consistent and productive operations.

Custom End-Effector for your Application Type

Our engineers can design a custom end-effector for your specific material handling application. This end-effector typically falls into one of four main categories depending on the product: OD (outer diameter) gripper, ID (inner diameter) gripper, swing clamp, or vacuum gripper. As an alternative, a tool can also be mounted to the end of the arm.

Smart Arm Technology

Our specialized AdaptiCS program can be integrated into your project for error-proofing almost any application. Smart arm technology is able to monitor the process to help provide additional safety and quality checks for more consistent performance.
