Our articulating lift arms are similar to 3-D manipulators and have the same control as well as lift functions. They are best suited for material handling applications that require the articulating lift arms to remain above the work area and which don’t require rigid 3-D tooling capability. We can manufacture articulating arms in 2-arm, 3-arm, or 4-arm assembly models with a maximum payload capacity of 500 lbs and reach radius of up to 12′. Reach, assembly patterns, and weight ratings can be customized to suit your specific application needs.

We specialize in manufacturing industrial articulating lifts for material handling applications, from loading and unloading to positioning. TDA Buddy’s articulating lift arms are available for parts that are centered on the drop link rather than being cantilevered or overhung. Our ergonomic articulating arms help operators perform repetitive and physically stressful lifting tasks with ease. They can be fitted with tool balancers, tool holders, end effectors, and pneumatic or electric hoists. Multiple joint arm flexibility facilitates smooth maneuvering around work-area obstructions.
