Industrial Manipulator Products Overview

An ERGOFLEX industrial manipulator is a self-contained, manually controlled hydraulic lifting arm used for quick, convenient and accurate handling of materials. It is much faster, safer, more versatile and accurate than a jib crane and a mere fraction of the cost of an industrial robot.

ERGOFLEX industrial manipulators can perform many positioning and assembling tasks such as loading work pieces into machine tools, removing cores from boxes, manipulating large sheets of steel or glass and an assortment of other operations. ERGOFLEX industrial manipulators can be found in numerous companies throughout the world performing handling operations that were previously done manually with jib cranes or overhead cranes.

Ergoflex works with our customers to develop custom solutions to meet their material handling needs.  Our expertise and array of tooling options enable us to often provide a more economic semi-custom solution as well.  So whatever your material handling needs may be we are ready, willing and able to help provide the perfect solution.

Ergoflex MA - Light & Fast

The Ergoflex model MA series industrial manipulator is the fastest, lightest and most efficient arm system.  It can be equipped with our standard array of end-of-arm tools and is hydraulically powered.  It can also be installed on a stationary floor pillar or an overhead trolley.  It typically requires more ceiling clearance and has less off-center loading capacities than the Hydraulic MB series.  Maximum lift capacities are 575 pounds with off-center capabilities of 580 ft-lbs.
