Manual Handling

Developed by Robotics Design Inc & Michel Dallaire Design Industriel inc. Canada

The ANATERGOARM™ AEA-15 is a heavy-duty modular ergonomic arm constructed of anodized aluminum. It provides a weight-free, safe and comfortable way to position and use a wide variety of heavy pneumatic, electric and hydraulic tools. The ERGOARM™ is composed of a vertical column for the base connected to a serial linkage of modules for the arm(s) that fold relatively to each other to offer a large coverage area.

At the touch of a button, users can effortlessly move the ANATERGOARM™ and any attached accessory vertically, while horizontal movements are easily guided by the wrist. The automatic brake equipped in the arm allows it to stop and stay at its current vertical position when the button is released. The base of the robot contains weights which balance the arm depending on the attached pay-load, which nullifies the effect of gravity and provides the arm with friction-less movement.

The ANATERGOARM™'s modular design was made to mimic the biomechanical movement of the human body, and this hyper-redundant capability allows for exceptional obstacle avoidance abilities. This increases efficiency and productivity for workers doing both repetitive tasks and tasks in limited spaces. Also, the effort-free movement of the ANATERGOARM™ helps to prevent Repetitive Motion Injury (RMI) at the workplace, while minimizing worker fatigue and accidents.

The ANATERGOARM™’s length can be customized by adding or removing modules to or from the arm. An optional extension can be added to allow the user to rotate the tool holder by 90 or 180 degrees. The arm can be mounted on a column or fixed overhead using our rugged support system, designed for long lasting performance.
