Manually activated grippers require no special power or air supply and provide simple, rapid and reliable operation.
Manual clamping grippers are often a safer, faster and simpler alternative to powered clamps. Andron offers a wide range of manual grippers, including toggle and over-centre clamps, linear slides, scissor mechanisms and more. Almost any powered gripper can be converted to manual operation, where necessary making use of linkage and latching systems to provide a safe single point of operation.
Our manual grippers are ideal for use with existing hoist and crane systems and also integrate well with our range of manipulators and intelligent lifting devices.
