The handling of tiles is a physically demanding activity because of the weight of the loads. By equipping operators with a suction cup manipulator, productivity is maximized while reducing the risks associated with poor posture and movement.

Manut-LM has developed solutions to assist manual handling in the form of cobotic devices (collaborative robots), in order to assist operators in handling loads of all weights, shapes and volumes.

Thanks to a control handle associated with a lifting tube, the operator is able to lift up to 100 kg in an ergonomic way by completely eliminating the weight of his load.

Video – Tile Handling

The MASTER Fast Lifting Tube Manipulator has been designed and custom-made in France by Manut-LM to meet the specific needs of tile manufacturers and distributors.

This device allows you to pick up packages of tiles thanks to a specific pneumatic clamp adapted to several formats. The unit can be installed on a crane or a jib depending on the surface to be covered and the budget.

The manipulator can lift up to 100 kg without any risk of MSD for the operator, which considerably improves the palletizing speed of your loads.

This unique device on the market gives operators autonomy in the handling of tile bundles, increasing productivity tenfold and eliminating MSD.

Product advantages

A series of safety devices guarantee the integrity of the load and the protection of the operators.

Removal of the load weight for the operators during the tile package spalletization and depalletization operations. The pneumatic clamping system guarantees a safe grip of the load, avoiding falls and accidents. Button control systems for safe pick-up and drop-off of loads.

An ergonomic and comfortable tool.

The lifting tube technology allows for flexible use. A fast execution of the operation is possible thanks to a very fluid rise / fall and a fast pinching of the load. A 360° rotation of the device and its fixation under a jib crane or a overhead crane simplifies all movements with or without the load. A clamp adapted to several sizes of tile packages that allows to take the palletized packages side by side.
