Solutions for manual handling

Our products are cooperative manipulators designed to provide physical assistance to operators handling heavy loads. Machines that interact with operators in shared workspaces are also called Cobotics.
Manut-LM products provide several benefits to our customers:

Productivity: Repetitive hand lifting or heavy lifting decreases operator productivity throughout the day. The Manut-LM solutions, thanks to their fluidity and ergonomics, make it possible to maintain or increase the productivity of workstations. No more effort is required with a Manut-LM manipulator.
Health: The elimination of the weight to be lifted by the operators thanks to a Manut-LM lifting device has a direct impact on the health of the employees. Handling heavy and/or bulky loads can cause pain and excessive fatigue. When these handling operations become repetitive, they can also lead to MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders) which cause sick leave.

Safety: The lifting of heavy loads can be a source of accidents in case of involuntary release. This problem is even more present when the loads are large. Manut-LM tools are equipped with safety devices to protect the operator from any accidental release. It is impossible to deposit the loads without a voluntary action of the operator. These features help to eliminate work-related accidents at high-risk workstations.
Autonomy: With the ability to lift up to 300 kg effortlessly, ergonomically and with great fluidity, operators become autonomous in handling their loads. The manipulations that used to require up to 6 people become the easiest.

Manut-LM products are therefore both machines designed to maximize productivity and tools to improve well-being at work!
