The TorqLIFT provides a rigid "load arm" between the work piece and the crane, allowing loads to be securely handled and manipulated. Off center load handling, reach-in applications, and changes in product orientation can be easily accomplished in a safe, ergonomic manner. It employs a lifting cylinder combined with a guide shaft and linear bearing combination. The guide shaft prevents the lifting cylinder from experiencing any effect of side load that could cause binding or rod & seal damage. A wrist swivel with end effector mounting plate provides rotation capability for precise tool orientation and positioning of loads.
