They are products that facilitate handling material or products and also products in production process. They can be either simple “manual” handling equipment or special automated mechanisms with drive.
Manual suspensions and handling equipment are primarily designed only for more simple and occasional handling and they use to be usually suspended on lifting equipment, while operator performs manually the given operation, e.g. clamping, slewing or other change of position.
Automated handling equipments are equipped with own drive that together with further mechanisms assures the process of itself gripping of the load or change of its position. It means that all necessary operations can be performed without presence of operator and in automated working process. The inherent design of manipulator can be always adapted to specific conditions and requirements of operation where equipment will be used.
