The pneumatically powered Famatec Friendly ergonomic manipulator from Haeco counterbalances heavy loads to allow an operator to suspend, rotate, tilt, and transfer product with precision and reduced effort. Equipped with appropriate end-of-arm tooling, three different models offer load capacities of 330, 550, and 880 lbs., with a working radius of 20 ft.
The intuitive control console allows adjustment of the counterbalance force, rotation, tilt, braking, and parking. Suspended product can be rotated ±90 degrees under power or rotated continuously by hand, with powered tilting from 0 to 93 degrees. The console slides on the handle to adapt to the operator's preferred working height and position, nearer or farther from the product.
Product release is protected by a safety device that supports the product until it reaches its destination.
Mounting options include column, overhead, tracks, wheeled, or with a freestanding, fork truck-transportable base.
