The German Bionic Cray X exoskeleton supports the wearer’s lower back when lifting heavy loads, by actively simulating and strengthening movements.

Product Overview

 
Support Type
Active assistance (Servo motor)
 
Specifications

The German Bionic CRAY X combines advanced micromechanical components, a high-performance battery and an ultralight, ergonomic carrying system.

Technical Specifications

 
 
Loads
All manner of lifting, carrying and lowering of heavy items, including actions involving long leverage (for example lifting or moving crates/ pallets) as well as for tasks requiring extensive bending, compression and torsional loads on the spine.
Industrial IoT

To prevent the breakdown of muscles, Cray X actively supports physical function by simulating and enhancing the wearer’s movements, rather than fully taking over.

Health, inclusion and user satisfaction

 
Fulfilment of Individual Job Requirements
The Cray X relieves the back of strain and prevents injuries, as well as compensating for reduced lifting capabilities.
 
Applications
Exoskeletons come into play when human work cannot realistically be replaced by full automation or robotics systems.
Industrial Production
  • Sourcing and preparing materials for production (filling and refilling of equipment)
  • Unloading products and materials from machines
  • Packing and shipping of finished products
Automotive Industry
  • Sourcing and preparing materials for production (filling and refilling of equipment)
  • Assembly tasks
  • Packing and shipping of parts
Logistics
  • Pulling goods off shelves and distributing them
  • Order picking and packing
  • Loading / unloading from vehicles
Take a (big) load off.

In many jobs, heavy lifting is a routine part of the daily work. But how much does a worker actually lift each day? The Cray X can compensate up to 25 kg for each lifting movement. See the impressive effect it has for workers day in, day out, here.

Germany’s Manual Handling of Loads at Work Ordinance (Lastenhandhabungsverordnung) applies to all employees who are required to carry, lift or move heavy loads by muscle power alone in their work. Calculate how you can provide relief for your employees by using the Cray X during lifting.

Germany’s Manual Handling of Loads at Work Ordinance (Lastenhandhabungsverordnung) applies to all employees who are required to carry, lift or move heavy loads by muscle power alone in their work. Although the ordinance does not stipulate any specific limits, such limits can be calculated using the so-called “Key Indicator Method”. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the regulations of the Load Handling Ordinance are observed and that protective measures are taken, if necessary.
