Jothrom Industrial Manipulators
This long established company arrived on Caldoom many years ago having
liquidated their presence on other, less prestigious, worlds. Initially they
were involved in supplying those robot arms used by scientists to operate
dangerous substances in enclosed spaces. They abandoned this line of work
immediately on arrival on Caldoom and instead concentrated on making heavier
manipulators for more general industrial use.
It was reported that they moved to this field because they no longer had to
worry about the problems of air-tight seals and the difficulties they had
with previous products.
On Caldoom they have a record of producing solid and reliable equipment,
which in the hands of skilled operators can perform as creditably as far
more expensive gear purchased off world. In the hands of the barely
competent, their rugged nature means that it is likely that the equipment
will survive better than the operator.
