Manipulator System Features
Each manipulator system features a full 360° rotation ball bearing mounted top swivel, so your air lines will never tangle. All pneumatic logic controls are housed safely under a protective bellows, located for easy maintenance and a clean, dust free environment. The pneumatic logic is great for long term, low maintenance operation, keeping operating costs very low and eliminating the need to run costly electrical connections. All AiroLift units run off of clean, dry shop air and have low SCFM requirements and low dB levels.
Manipulators Comply with OHSA and NIOSH Standards
AiroLift manipulators comply with the recommended OSHA and NIOSH standards, features catastrophic air loss protection, and sensors that prevent a load from being released until it has been placed.
