Industrial Manipulators

Industrial manipulators are used for power assisted lifting in both light and heavy industrial environments for handling payloads from 10 to 1,000 pounds.

An industrial manipulator allows 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 industrial manipulator 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 industrial manipulator handling application.

Industrial manipulator tooling options include:

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

Industrial manipulator tooling functions can include:

  • Pitching
  • Flipping
  • Horizontal rotation
  • Telescoping

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

An industrial manipulator 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 industrial manipulators acceptable in a wide range of handling environments.

Industrial manipulators are manufactured in painted mild steel and stainless steel to 316L GMP for food and beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical requirements.

Shannahan's industrial manipulator solutions are backed by top level engineering, project and quality management including validation.

Industrial manipulators require detailed applications engineering to determine feasibility and an optimum handling solution.
