The VERSA Telemanipulator from Central Research Laboratories (CRL), a Destaco company, is suited for remote-handling applications that involve specific customization requirements. The device is available sealed or unsealed and offers medium-duty (MD) and heavy-duty (HD) models with lifting capacities of 20 lbs (9.0 kg) and 50 lbs (22.7 kg), respectively.
