Tractors

Tractors
Knight Pneumatic, Electric and Servo Tractors are designed primarily to help an operator push, pull, lift and position a load that is suspended from a trolley on an overhead rail system. They accurately locate and move loads in the “X” and “Y” directions with precision and reliability while significantly reducing the push pull forces as well as the energy to sustain

Tables, Carts and Accumulators

Lift Tables, Carts and Accumulators
Knight’s Tables, Carts and Accumulators product line incorporates the use of pneumatic control and smart technology to make operations cleaner, simplify spare part inventories and reduce overall general maintenance.

Knight’s exclusive air bag designs offers high durability and resistance to wear. We stand by our quality and workmanship with a unique five year, parts and

Torque Tubes

Torque Tubes
Knight’s Torque Tubes are designed to reduce operator fatigue by absorbing torque reaction produced by assembly tools while balancing the tool weight. Torque Tubes use a pneumatic cylinder or spring balancer to achieve zero gravity balancing. Each pneumatic cylinder is supplied with single balance control.

Torque Tubes are most commonly used as tool holders by incorporating Knight’s ASA9518

Servo Systems

Servo Hoist Systems
Knight Servo Hoist Systems are user-friendly, Intelligent Assist Devices (IAD) that provide controlled transfers of workloads by enhancing the precision and speed needed for the application. As an extension of an operator’s natural movement, this technology greatly improves the accuracy and repeatability of the application.

The inherent benefits include: elimination of wasted motion, reduced reaction time, and

Lift Assists

Lift Assists
Knight specializes in custom lift assists and lifting devices for all ergonomic situations. Our design-and-build department works in unison with our customers to create custom tools and system layouts which conform to the specifications of each individual facility. We also create tools and adjust existing technology to fit the needs of our manufacturing clients.

Jib Cranes

Jib Cranes
Knight Jib Cranes, or Jib Booms, are comprised of single rails rotating on floor mounted posts. They are designed to move effortlessly over expansive tool areas while carrying large capacity loads.

Jib Cranes are an ideal solution for integrating servo hoists, pneumatic balancers, torque tubes and other hoists into a manufacturing facility.

Controls

Control Handles
Knight Control Handles come with both horizontal and vertical adjustments along with comfortable ergonomic grips designed to ensure correct operator positioning, making them excellent replacements for non-ergonomic control handles.

Our controls come in either pneumatic, electric or a combination of both and can be customized to fit your application needs.

Arms

Articulating Arms
Knight Pneumatic, Extension, Vertical and Servo Articulating Arms provide a wide variety of configurations to lift, rotate, balance, move and transfer products to and from conveyors, dunnage, assembly lines and more.

Our ergonomic articulating arms help to reduce operator fatigue by absorbing torque reaction and allowing for effortless lifting and manipulating of products. These are best used for

Tandem Cable/Chain Pneumatic Balancer Series

Knight’s Tandem Pneumatic Balancer Series is primarily designed for weights exceeding 700 lbs. . Tandem pneumatic balancers are designed to provide the weight capacities of a reeved air balancer application, while simultaneously incorporating the extended travel benefits of a single pneumatic balancer.

Our tandem chain balancers use a custom grade 80 lifting chain specially treated to increase the life of

Reeved Cable/Chain Pneumatic Balancer Series

Knight’s Reeved Pneumatic Balancer Series is primarily designed for weights exceeding 450 lbs. . Reeving a pneumatic balancer increases the mechanical advantage of the product, and the stroke length is half the length of a standard balancer.

Our reeved pneumatic balancers come standard with a Knight swiveling shackle on a pulley.
