Industrial Manipulator Arm Specifications

Palamatic manipulators are used in both light and heavy industrial environments around the world for handling payloads from 10 to 1,000 pounds.

Industrial manipulator arms can be mounted from the floor, from overhead, on a counterweighted moveable base, from a gantry mounted trolley or from a buttress, wall or column mount.

Configuration 3





Configuration 4





Manipulator arms allow a single operator to safely and efficiently handle heavy and delicate payloads with the greatest of precision.  Industrial manipulators can provide reach in or under ability for loading machines that cannot be accessed by a hoist or vertically suspended lifting device.

Optional lift control features include:

  • Powered lifting and lowering
  • Automatic balancing
  • Preset balancing
  • Any combination of the above
  • Increasing or decreasing load weight for pouring

These control systems give precise control with the greatest flexibility according to each handling application.

Tooling options include:

  • External gripping or clamping
  • Internal gripping or clamping
  • Vacuum
  • Magnetics
  • Simple mechanical tools such as hooks, forks
  • Any useful combination of the above

Tooling manipulation can include:

  • Pitching
  • Flipping
  • Horizontal rotation
  • Telescoping

Manipulators give the operator precise control when lifting offset loads, fragile or delicate loads, high temperature or hazardous loads.

Palamatic manipulators can be floor mounted, overhead mounted, or mounted on a trolley running on parallel runways or a bridge and runway system.

Low noise levels and low maintenance make Palamatic manipulators acceptable in a wide range of handling environments.

The machines are manufactured in painted mild steel and stainless steel to 316L cGMP for food and beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical requirements. For information on pharmaceutical and clean room applications, click here.

Palamatic solutions are backed by top level engineering, project and quality management including validation.
