Manipulator Systems

With over 3,000 of our manipulator systems delivered and operating on virtually every work-class ROV in the world, these products have become the industry standard. Manipulators perform a variety of intervention tasks and are the primary tool used by ROV operators. These systems are all controlled remotely from surface and range from the rugged 5-function RigMasterTM to the 7-function, position-controlled TITAN 4TM, which provides the highest degree of precision and articulation. Additional manipulators include the CONANTM, ORIONTM, and ATLASTM manipulator systems, all of which serve different industry requirements.

As subsea intervention tasks continue to increase in complexity, our manipulator systems will continue to be at the forefront, providing the dexterity, strength, and reliability to perform the task at hand.

Manipulator Upgrades

Please scroll down the page for our list of potential upgrades for your Schilling Robotics manipulator arms.



TITAN Elbow Upgrade

Kit (101-8515, UPGRADE, T4 ELB, MP35N BOLTS) was developed in response to hydraulic fluid leaks which develop at the elbow on T4 manipulators. This kit consists of new bolts, washers, and o-rings, designed to improve reliability and increase resistance to leakage. Service Instructions are provided with each kit.
