In the industry, hydraulic manipulators are known for being adaptable, dependable, and straightforward solutions. Fully automated solutions, on the other hand, are known for being very good at a single, narrow application. Whether they’re being used to position products, lift them onto pallets, or pitch them at an angle for inspection, robots are limited in their applications. Because hydraulic manipulators take their instructions from an operator, they are afforded more flexibility: they can be repurposed and reused depending on your operation’s current needs.
