Even though part manipulators integrated to the press have limited movability in space, they feed the parts in a linear motion from palet press to press, from press to press and press to last press.

Part manipulators have respectively limited mobility and their elasticity of adaptation to changes in production are also limited. Nevertheless their initial investment costs compared with productivity gain is rather economical.

Compared to industrial robots, such part manipulators are suitable alternatives for systems where a small number of different models or single models are produced
