Manipulators are designed to work either independently or in conjunction with rotators and/or positioners to perform jobs like positioning an automatic welding head correctly over a work piece to achieve accurate down hand weld.
The manipulator is fully motorised for raise, lower and boom traverse with an optional motorised travelling base. It allows the use of fully automated production techniques which increase quality, reduce production time and reduce operator fatigue.
A safe vertical lift is achieved through an AC self-braking motor. A geared reducer provides constant speed and smooth movement. Moreover, the manipulator is equipped with an automated safety latch. This latch locks the room instantly when the chain tension on the boom lift is released. The boom is driven by spur gears. It has a rack on the underside to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
