Manipulators at a glance
Manipulator flanges are subjected to sizable forces due to atmospheric pressure, particularly where large nominal diameters are involved. To ensure that flanges remain in a stable position even under vacuum, we place great importance on the inherent rigidity when designing our manipulators and optimize them by using the Finite Elements Method (FEM) in our calculations. Together with the installation of high quality mechanical components this means that movements are extremely precise, smooth and free of play with excellent reproducibility. The low wear also means higher reliability and a very long service life.
