LodeArm® II

Pneumatic Lift Assist

Positech’s pneumatic LodeArm® II 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 the lifting, transfering, 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 the 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.
