The new Automated Remote Manipulater (ARM) from NLB Corp. is a semi-automated water jet system that increases operator protection while reducing downtime. It lets an operator manipulate a variety of accessories from the safety and comfort of a climate-controlled cab, using convenient joystick controls to position them and to start and stop the flow of high-pressure water (up to 40,000 psi, or 2,760 bar, at 600 hp).
- With specialized tooling mounted on the arm of a mini excavator, the ARM handles applications as diverse as shellside tube bundle cleaning and hydrodemolition
- Its quick-connect system makes it easy to change accessories
- The ARM has a vertical reach of about 12 feet and a horizontal reach of about 17 feet
- A wide water jet pattern allows for maximize coverage eliminating the fatigue of manual water jetting and the possibility of inconsistent results from operators with different skill levels
