The ANATERGOARM™ AEA-50M with the CutterGripper™ loads and unloads long and heavy cutting tools such as boring bars or twin boring bars and milling cutters and heads from the automatic tool changers of CNC milling and lathe machines and holds them in place for adjustments. It also holds or rotates the disc cutter for users to add and remove cutting edge inserts. The arm lets you slide loads effortlessly and glide through confined and tight spaces in complete comfort without power consumption. The ANAT technology the arm is made with gives it all the advantages of zero gravity tool balancers, snake arms and ergonomic manipulator arms. Any worker can continuously hold, twist and slip discs and milling cutters in and out at maximum efficiency in complete safety with the ANATERGOARM™. The AEA-50M is the most ergonomic method for loading and unloading CAT50 heavy cutters in CNC machines.

The ANATERGOARM™ AEA-50M is a series of four ANAT modules with a 1.2m reach that form an arm and a motorized column the arm moves up and down inside at the push of a button on the ergonomic handle. ANAT technology combined with a zero-gravity load design of the arm eliminates all friction for horizontal movements, so it takes no power to slide the arm and attached load horizontally. The modules fold over each other, allowing the arm to take the most direct path to any object in its 1.2m range, and glide around obstacles. The handle and arm support provide maximum comfort and the arm movements mimic the natural biomechanical movement of the human body for complete guiding comfort. The arm requires zero power consumption moving or resting and vertical movement is motorized as well as the gripper. Tools are rotated at the push of a button, and a braking system locks them in place. A fully customizable modular gripper called the CutterGripper™ holds loads at the end of the arm.

The arm’s modules fold around each other completely when not in use, minimizing storage space. ANATERGOARM™ eliminates RMI (Repetitive Motion Injury) from heavy and repetitive tasks and workers consistently perform at maximum efficiency as their work becomes effortless. This makes work enjoyable with the ANATERGOARM™, and more than satisfies all the CSST security requirements.
