Rope articulated arm manipulator

The rope articulated arm manipulator is characterized by its large working area with radii of up to four meters. This product can be anchored stationary to the floor or to the ceiling. Mounting on rails is also possible on the ceiling, with movement in the X and Y directions.


Each ZH70 rope lifting aid can also be equipped with an individual device. Zeilhofer Handling Technology offers you a complete product from planning to aftersales.

Control for rope articulated arm manipulator

The rope articulated arm manipulator can be equipped with different control concepts depending on customer requirements and specifications. Basically, there are three different ways to control the rope articulated arm manipulator:

  1. Pneumatic control

The use of pneumatics enables daily tasks to be completed intuitively and safely. Vertical movements can be carried out in a balancing manner, i.e. without pressing a button.

2. Electro-pneumatic control

The advantages of pneumatic control are retained. In addition, partially and fully automatic processes can be implemented with an electro-pneumatic control.

3. Electrical control

Thanks to a purely electrical control system, the medium of compressed air can be dispensed with entirely. Even the heaviest loads and partially and fully automatic processes can be implemented without any problems.

In addition to the three control concepts, there is also the option to choose between 4 different control options:

Balance control

For an almost weightless movement of loads. The system switches to load mode as soon as the load has been safely picked up - the vertical movement can be carried out effortlessly.

Automobile. Weight adjustment

With the automatic weight detection, the products to be moved are automatically weighed in after being picked up. As with the balancing control, vertical movement is now effortlessly possible and can be supported by pressing a button.

Up and down control

The vertical movement of the lifting axis ZH90 is implemented with button control. The travel movement can be accelerated using an additional button. Small movements are possible without pressing a button.

Safety control

A release of the load is only possible if the gripper is in a defined end position or is released by an index.

Automobile. Weight finding

Components of different weights are moved vertically by pressing a button. If the component is in the air, you can switch to the balancing control by pressing a button.
