Positech’s low-profile Transfer Arm (ATA) allows placement in areas too confined to accommodate larger material handling equipment. Specifically designed for minimum vertical travel and to fit limited-access work cells, this machine is well-suited for loading and unloading machining centers and for positioning assembly. Mounting options include pedestal, mobile/portable base, overhead fixed, or on trolleys.

ATA-5** 500 24 72
TTA-3*** 300 24 72
TTA-5*** 500 24 72

*Includes payload and end-effector; increasing arm length reduces payload capacity. Lift capacity dependent upon arm length.
