Brake press manipulators use a patented end effector that moves a sheet through a brake press. The brake press manipulator is a style of manipulator that allows one operator to perform the tasks efficiently that would normally be performed by two.
The Side-Column manipulator was designed by Givens Engineering to provide a rigid column with high mobility. It combines the best features of manipulators with the great travel of a crane. Slide-column manipulators are particularly helpful when it comes to larger loads, minimizing the swinging that would normally make it difficult to place a load.
At Givens Engineering, we can create custom and specially-mounted manipulators to suit your unique projects. Our specially-mounted manipulators can be mounted on a crane to allow for exceptional travel and can also be mounted on taller columns when greater height is required.
We have 5 standard models of manipulators available in increasing moment capacities (in general, the model numbers refer to thousands of inch-pounds of moment capacity).
