Industrial Manipulator PARTNER EQUO with articulated arms

Pneumatic Manipulator PARTNER EQUO with articulated arms, equipped with special gripping tools, is suitable to handle manufactured products having an off-set centre of mass compared to the vertical axis of the Manipulator arm. Its modular structure has been designed to resist the torsions resulted from this stress. In addition, having the possibility to change the terminal arm shape and dimensions to suit, the manipulator Partner PE can be used in particularly narrow environments.


A pneumatic cylinder fed with compressed-air, combined with a transmission lever system, provides balance to the load weight applied.
The cylinder force is controlled through two pneumatic circuits purposely arranged: the first one always keeps the weight system balanced; the second one provides to always keep the weight load balanced.
The operator can change the load level applying a minimum force on the gripping tool or directly on the load.

Balancing System

It allows a fast presetting of the load balancing effect in case of weight change.

Up/down lever
It allows the lifting and handling of the load in a quick, precise and linear way, without any adjustments, simply actioning a lever control.

Lever pushbutton 
It allows the load balancing by actioning a pneumatic pushbutton after lifting the load through a lever control.

It allows automatic load balancing without any adjustment, after having simply actioned the gripping through proper controls.

Partner Equo fixed overhead

Fixed overhead
Anchor flange
The pneumatic manipulator Partner PS overhead version allows the elimination of any floor obstructions.
The flange of the Manipulator is supplied with holes for the anchoring with screws to a strong plate to the ceiling or to a shelf.
All movements are free and are obtained with minimum effort by the direct action of the operator on the gripping tooling or on the load.

Partner Equo running over hread

Fixed overhead
The Manipulator is supplied with an overhead trolley to run in a tracking system.
Tracking system
The tracking system is composed of two opposite aluminium U sections with connecting and stiffening ribs,complete with attachment points for an overhead suspension and end buffers. The junction between the various parts is done with screws.Attachment
The attachment of the tracking system to the supporting structure is carried out by means of rods and suspension brackets.
