At Last, A Bionic Arm That Lifts And Balances

The Quick Lift Arm devices are ergonomic, advanced, lift assist devices with lifting capacities of 35, 50, 75, 125 and 300Kg. These intelligent devices allow any required functions for the end effectors to be programmed into the units. The 35kg unit is an economy version, that is non programmable. They are easily installed and include a floor mounted pillar, a motor unit, an articulated aluminium arm, with needle bearings and an ergonomic manoeuvre handle They offer low momentum and resistance, leaving the operator with significantly less overhead mass. Jibs are available in 3.2, 3.7 and 4.2m radii and can be pillar, wall or ceiling mounted. The manoeuvre handle senses the up and down force of the operator. The lifting motion of the motor then reflects this force. Regardless of the load only 20 grams of operating force is required to lift the load. When the handle is released the load is in balance allowing the operator to use both hands to move the load freely, with minimal force. The handle is attached to the gripping device and is close to the load to increase operator feel and awareness. Quick Lift Arm decreases ergonomic injury and noticeably improves productivity in a work station without neglecting precision and safety. Quick Lift Arm has a number of standard options available.

How Easy Is This?
With just a feather touch on the patented lift handle and our Quick Lift Arm and Quick Lift Rail units leap into controlled action. Where the hand goes, so the load follows. It is truly the closest thing to the bionic hand since the TV series “Six Million Dollar Man”. When the manoeuvre handle is released the lifted product is in balance and can be lifted and lowered for precise positioning without the use of the control handle. The speed is variable up to 0.5m/sec.
