Acer Manipulators

The Acer series of manipulators are the newest members in our ergonomic lift assist family line
up; the lifting mechanism consists of a double rope assembly and pneumatic cylinder which
allows for balanced movements, both with and without a load. Each Acer includes a standard
safety hook for lifting or can be provided with specific gripping tools such as vacuum cups,
powered grippers, magnetic grip, fashioned hook or fork, expanding mandrels or customized
tools built to your exact specifications. The Acer is ideally suited for repetitive lifting tasks
where overhead access to the pick-up and drop off points are free and clear of any obstructions
either overhead or otherwise and, is best placed in small work cell areas & progressive assembly
line applications.

The manipulator includes an “CE certified” accumulation tank to allow the operator to carry out
the handling process in case the main air supply fails, dual wire ropes are provided for added
safety and the boom includes a disc brake & caliper braking system to mobilize arm movement
when needed; one is located at the main axle & column and one between the primary and
secondary arms. The Acer is very easy to handle, lightweight, quick-moving and also employs
our “Plug & Play” maintenance technology which allows your personnel without needing high
technical expertise to replace critical pneumatic components that can be purchased from local
supply house organizations thereby greatly reducing any downtime should the need arise.. Call
on our skilled sales staff and expert engineers to experience our special blend of creativity,
service & knowledge and we will provide you with an ergonomic handling solution on your next
project.
