The Cricket-II manipulator from Koike Aronson Ransome (Arcade, NY) offers the most stability in its class to ensure consistent quality and maintain joint alignment in submerged arc, TIG, and MIG welding applications.
Equipped with a lift speed of 20 inches per minute, the welding manipulator features a 500-pound load capacity, CAM roller guidance, and through-the-boom cable management. A variable speed-powered reach option offers adjustable speeds from 3 inches to 120 inches per minute. NEMA-12 electrical enclosures protect the manipulator from debris, dust, and water infiltration.
Mast rotation option enables the operator to swing the boom out of the work area or to work efficiently between two stations with one manipulator. Other options include travel cars, cross slides, digital speed controls, and self-standing bases.
