At TDA Buddy, we love robots. The gracefulness and dexterity they exhibit is amazing and we love watching them. However, there are a lot of situations where robots aren’t appropriate, either due to work area limitations, economics, maintenance and programming, part size or weight, or imprecise part positioning. In these cases, you need to find a different, more versatile solution. You need a solution that will grow with the ever-changing needs of your business and adapt to the requirements of your current application.
In our history, we’ve built a lot of industrial manipulators that work together with robots, either at the beginning or the end of a robotic work cell. As they are run by an operator, our manipulators can easily integrate into your line, alongside robots, cobots, and other manipulators.
TDA Buddy manipulators can provide lifting and position changes like a robot while still allowing for the visual ability of a human operator. Better yet, they’re less than a third the price of a robot and don’t require intensive maintenance, programming, or precise positioning.
If you think that a robot is appropriate for your lifting and maneuvering applications but can’t justify one financially, we encourage you to give us a call. With years of experience in the business and a proven history of delivering material handling solutions to a wide range of industries, you can count on us to identify the equipment that will work best for you. And, once we find it, you can be confident that we can deliver it to your specifications. So, if you’ve been searching for an economical, ergonomic solution to your line’s needs, don’t hesitate to give us a call or reach out to us via our contact page.
