Removable Wrist Joint

Removable Wrist JointThe wrist joint is a collection of gears, bevel gears, bearing, and pulleys that mesh together to give the telemanipulator the hand-like motion that are their trademarks. On a remote arm, the wrist and tong area of a telemanipulator gets the most contaminated. The Removable Wrist Joint will help with special cases where a standard tong/wrist is problematic and needs to be removed from the remote arm.

  • Booting attaches above the tong to reduce tong friction
  • Removable without input from another telemanipulator
  • “Dirtiest” portion of the remote arm can be left in the cell for maintenance operations

Z Manual Ergonomic Adjustment

Telemanipulator indexing lets you change the relationship of the command and remote arms to improve in cell reach, or make operations easier by allowing the operator to stand in a comfortable position. Z Indexing (or Extension) controls the height of the remote arm in relation to the command arm. Z Manual Ergonomic Adjustment takes that a step further to allow the operator to make a manual adjustment to the command arm allowing for a more ergonomic working height, while keeping the remote arm in its original working position.

  • Independent height adjustment on command arm
  • Provides ergonomic comfort adjustment for operators
