Accelerate your throughput!
The M500 Compact Manipulator gives you the speed and convenience of pneumatic power for smaller test heads.
  • Floating State Technology.
    Easy, intuitive movement means faster adjustment. Less than 3 kilograms (6.6 pounds) of force lifts a 110kilogram (240-pound) test head.

  • Floating State Technology.
    Easy, intuitive movement means faster adjustment. Less than 3 kilograms (6.6 pounds) lifts a 250-kilogram (550-pound) test head.

  • State-of-the-Art Pneumatic Power.
    No counterweights, for faster,easier set-up. And the M500 won’t suffer from “Fading Lift” like competitive pneumatics; power stays constant while in use.

  • Safe, Secure Operation.
    Proprietary lock design prevents unintended test head motion if air pressure is lost.

  • Independent Motion.
    Make independent adjustments to Up/Down,In/Out, and Side-to-Side motions, without disturbing the rest of your setup.
  • Compact Size.
    Shorter overall height and a small footprint help you get maximum productivity from expensive test floor real estate.

  • Versatility. Flexible design gives you compatibility over a wide range of prober/handler types.
