Positech’s pneumatic LodeArmII (LAII) is a lightweight manipulator* arm that is designed to service multiple machining centers and applications where reach-in is necessary. With lift capacity up to 350 pounds, it is specifically designed to reduce the physical stress of manipulation which require lifting, transfer and positioning of parts. The LodeArmII provides a high capacity lift system in a compact package, as well as rigid support and reach-in capability. Ergonomically designed up/down controls reduce potential for thumb and wrist disorders. The LodeArmII is mounted on an overhead trolley, which integrates with a variety of overhead rail systems. Because of its lightweight, it can be pushed easily along the rails.

check-zoom Advantages

  • 5:1 design factor minimum on all structural components
  • Pilot operated lock valve on lift cylinder prevents downward arm movement and if supply pressure is interrupted
  • Optional Gripper Safety Circuitry available, prevents accidental release of unsupported payloads
  • Lost Load Cylinder is a separately sealed hydraulic device that protects the operator from any sudden, uncontrolled upward motion of the manipulator arms
  • Parallel linkage arms allow end-effector to remain parallel to the floor
  • Minimum Lift Cylinder Circuit prevents rapid uncontrolled downward movement
  • Does not require an air lubricator
  • Complies with CE and other National Standards
  • Optional adjustable rotation stops

graph-zoom Performance

  • Lightweight and easy to position
  • Standard Push Button Metering Valve Control for finite positioning
  • Optional balance control allows an operator to achieve critical load positioning by hand
  • 360° continuous main post rotation
  • End-of-arm rotating axis has up to 5,000 inch pounds of moment loading capacity
  • Pneumatically operated, requires clean dry input pressure
  • Precision bearings and thrust washers at rotation axes for smooth motion and long life
  • Standard pneumatic caliper main post brake
