Prevent Muscular Stress on Your Workers with Ergonomic Industrial Manipulators

Articulating Arms

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, back injuries are the most common safety issue in the American workplace. With the compensation costs involved – totaling over $52 billion per year – it's no surprise that employers all across the country are looking for effective ways to prevent these types of injuries. Sure, you could invest in a fully-automated operation... but the upfront costs are intimidating and, worse yet, the ongoing costs of maintenance and software updates could result in a financial wash.

Gain the Benefits of Full Automation at a Fraction of the Cost with an Industrial Manipulator

Industrial Manipulators

A fully-automated, robotic system can streamline your workflow by making it easier for your employees to perform their daily tasks. Whether they're moving products throughout your facility, preparing them for shipment or positioning them for service, these kinds of laborious, repetitive motions can take a physical toll on them. And, while robots are a surefire way to solve one problem, they don't offer the affordability – and flexibility – that industrial manipulators offer. While they save you time in your production schedule, they cost you time in training, employee acquisition and maintenance.

Take Advantage of the Adaptability of Hydraulic Manipulators

Hydraulic Manipulator

One of the greatest benefits of using hydraulic manipulators is their versatility. When compared to robots – and other fully-automated systems – their ability to adapt to changing circumstances is unmatched. While robots are great at what they do, they are typically designed to do one thing and one thing only. Manipulators, on the other hand, can be repurposed and adapted to new sets of instructions and, as a result, they can be made to address the ever-shifting needs of the factory floor.

Increase Safety and Prevent Workplace Injuries with Industrial Manipulators


It shouldn't come as a surprise that workers' compensation claims have the potential to severely handicap your profits. OSHA estimates that, on average, companies pay $1 billion every single week due to injuries sustained by their employees. This figure, while intimidating, only represents half of the equation, as well. Coupled with the cost of hiring replacements, training new staff, repairing equipment and – of course – the cost of investigating workers' comp claims, workplace injuries don't just threaten to handicap your business... they can often gravely cripple your ability to operate at an efficient, profitable level.
