A200 articulated manipulator

for boxes up to medium cells

The articulated manipulator offers precision and great flexibility for versatile application.
The Wälischmiller Engineering A200 articulated manipulator is a master-slave manipulator for remotely-operated handling of objects and tools in boxes and smaller cells. The A200 makes precise, speedy and safe handling possible, particularly of hazardous substances in nuclear medicine, bio-technology and nuclear technology.

Operate safely and healthily with the A200

The manipulator consists of a grommet, a working arm/slave arm (also called a hot arm) and an operating /Masterarm (also called a cold arm).

The arms of the A200 consist of a shoulder, an elbow and a wrist.

The hot arm and cold arm are linked by the wall bushing. The grommet is integrated into the screening wall. Thus the grommet creates a protective barrier between the operator and the working side of a cell or box. It can also come in a gas-proof version. Due to this construction, the operator can safely handle hazardous objects in the cell.

The motions of the hot arm are pre-set on the cold arm. The hot arm on the working side mirrors these motions simultaneously and precisely.

The object to be handled is immediately perceptible thanks to direct transmission. The weight compensation system prevents overload affecting the operator, particularly if the hot arm is fully extended. Ergonomically-shaped handles make operation more comfortable.

Overview of performance of the A200 articulated manipulator Series

1.7 to 2.25 m

Weight compensation / compensation

Compensation for operation with little effort and throughout the work area is guaranteed

Additional functions

Type A201E also has electrical offset in X-movement (right / left)


  • Protective cover of the working arm (so-called bootings)
  • Gas-tight passage (type A201 & A202)
  • Extension by standard tools

Bootings: Protective covers

A201 and A202 manipulators can be fitted with protective covers (bootings) to prevent contamination and soiling on the „hot arm“.


Versatility through modularity.

The length of the operating arm, the working arm and the wall bushing are variable. This means that the manipulator can be matched flexibly to your respective cell size.

We differentiate between the A201/A201E and A202 models.

  • The A201 is suited to installation heights of about 1850 mm to 2250 mm.
  • The A201E is like the A201 with electric adjustment for lateral and Y motions.
  • The A202 is also gas-proof in the protective wall or box wall grommet. It is otherwise exactly like the A201.

Fixed tongs are installed in the standard A201 manipulator. Interchangeable tongs are available as an option. They are fixed to the wrist of the „hot arm“ with a quick-release coupling and can be changed remotely.

Your advantages in all this:

  • You save downtime changing and/or repairing components, resulting in increased efficiency
  • Faster handling, resulting in minimal loss of time and increased productivity

Strong arguments for an A200master-slave manipulator

  • Intuitive, ergonomic and precise operation.
  • Gas-proof available.
  • The rotary and swivelling motions of the gripper tongs are transmitted in a 1:1 ratio, facilitating precise and comfortable operation.
  • Comprehensive accessories.
  • The same parts as in other series minimise storage of spares and accessories.
  • Economic solutions and fast delivery times.
  • Speedy repairs.
  • Worldwide service.
