Heavy Duty Articulating Pneumatic Arm

Knight’s AAA9000 Overhead and Floor Mounted Heavy Duty Articulating Pneumatic Arms are parallelogram arms used to lift, rotate, balance, and move product from conveyors, dunnage, assembly lines and more. They utilize twin cylinders in the rear of the arm to achieve greater lifting capacity while reducing the overall mass of the tool. This minimizes operator fatigue by absorbing torque reaction and helping to lift and manipulate the product effortlessly.

The Overhead Mounted AAA9000 travels inside Knight’s RAD6110 and RAD7510 Aluminum Series Rail Systems on the “X”, “Y”, and “Z” axis and features a variety of control configurations.

Knight also offers fixed and 360 degree rotational AAA9000 Articulating Arms. These have a maximum reach (without Extension Boom) of 60 in. [1,524mm] and a maximum balance capacity of up to 600 lbs. [272kg] at 100 psi [6.8bar]. Capacities vary with reach.
