ECA Group supplies a 7-function electric manipulator arm to a South Korean Institute for design engineering purpose
ECA Group has entered an order for a 7E Mini electric manipulator arm from a Korean Research Institute specialized in long term studies on underwater robotics.
The electric arm was selected for its 7-function performances as part of a study project to improve Remotely Operated Vehicles' buoyancy features.
ECA Group offers a wide range of lightweight electric manipulators, and its 7E Mini model fulfilled totally the requirements of the client, which already owned a 5 function electric mini manipulator arm from ECA Group.
The institute was looking for a lightweight, though powerful 7 function manipulator arm to be installed on their experimental compact ROV, to carry on tests for design engineering purposes. With this equipped ROV, the Research Institute will aim at developing additional thrusters so as to compensate for the net weight and momentum of the arm (in folded and deployed positions) and thereby maintain an optimum stability during operations.
This 7E Mini electric arm was delivered at the end of 2017.
