Manipulators balance random weights automatically.

April 3, 2014

With pneumatic AutoBalance feature, Manipulators automatically balance unknown weights as they lift them. Load is gripped and operator pulls up on manipulator's handlebars. Balance point rises until load lifts off floor and AutoBalance memorizes weight. From that point on, operator can let go of handlebars and pull load itself up and down in balanced state. Feature is useful when lifting same shape part in factory, but where there are 2 or more weights, or where weight varies randomly. Read More
