UM Series under-hung/overhead manipulators feature a manipulator mounted to an overhead traveling system. Taking advantage of the X and Y axis movement offered by bridge cranes, the design of the manipulators are to perform the work of several machines. Overhead manipulators can stabilize out-of-balance loads that cannot be handled by swinging or dangling hoists.

The unique design of Unidex UM Series manipulators offers reach-in flexibility for machine loading and unloading. These manipulators are used in applications such as the handling of castings, parts or tooling, paper or film rolls, and stacking and reaching into restricted areas such as ovens, parts washers, racks, presses, and other equipment.

A Unidex UM Series overhead manipulator can be designed into a work area that includes Unidex workbenches, assembly tables, and other lifting equipment to provide a complete ergonomic solution.
