ONE-PIECE TELEMANIPULATORS

Safe & efficient remote handling solution

The one-piece telemanipulator is the most widely used and consists of a command (master) arm, remote (slave) arm, and through-the-wall tube assembled as one unit. Stainless steel tapes and cables are used to transmit motions from the command arm to the remote arm in continuous closed loops. The single unit telemanipulator is installed and removed in the hot cell from the operator’s side.

The installation is accomplished by indexing the remote arm to a position in line with the wall tube, inserting the telemanipulator into the wall sleeve, then indexing the remote arm down to an operating position inside the hot cell. The single unit telemanipulator is typically used when the in-cell atmosphere is air instead of an inert gas. An optional booting assembly can be added to restrict air flow into the hot cell and to protect the remote arm from contamination.
