Proven Technology Customized For Your Specific Needs
For over 70 years CRL has been a trusted manufacturer of telemanipulators. Today, our experienced experts continue to deliver customized and innovative solutions to meet evolving industry needs.
CRL Telemanipulators extend the dexterous manipulative capabilities of a human operator remotely into a high radiation or hazardous environment. Typical tasks range from operation of laboratory instruments to the maintenance of large process equipment, all requiring dexterous manipulations. These tasks are unstructured and require real-time human intervention.
Natural motions of the hands at the command (master) end are reproduced identically at the remote (slave) end. These operations are accomplished with a minimum of effort and a maximum of precision due to careful counter-balancing and reduction of mass, friction and lost motion. Very little force is required to initiate and maintain uniform motion in any horizontal or vertical direction.
Types of Telemanipulators
- Unsealed design for use in an air environment
- Consists of a command (master) arm, remote (slave) arm, and through-the-wall tube assembled as one unit
- Can be sealed for use in inert environments
- Consists of three independent assemblies, the command (master) arm, the remote (slave) arm and the through-the-wall tube (seal tube)
