†Reid-Ashman's Patented Vertical Direct-Drive system (Patent #6,766,996) eliminates the need for removable counterweights. Because of this, these manipulators utilize a smaller column, weigh less, and maintain center of gravity integrity better than traditional counterweighted manipulators with similar weight carrying capacities.
