KSHFA Series Floor Mounted Articulating Servo Hoist Arm
Knight Global's KSHFA Series Floor Mounted Servo Hoist Arm is an Intelligent Assist Device (IAD) that enables an operator to precisely locate or float a load in the "Z" direction (vertical axis) with speed, precision, quality and unmatched reliability. The KSHFA Series Servo Arm allows for an overhead varied reach within a work cell or station. Knight's Floor Mounted KSHFA Series is most commonly used when overhead clearances or support structures will not accommodate an overhead rail system.

Knight's Servo Hoist technology becomes an extension of an operator's natural movements and greatly improves accuracy, responsiveness and repeatability; which increases overall safety, productivity and quality. The inherent benefits include: eliminating wasted motions, reduced reaction times, and minimal effects of inertia with heavy loads.
