TDA Buddy, Inc introduces our new Hoistipulator line of pneumatic 3-D manipulators. It’s a manipulator that works like a hoist. Instead of our standard neutral balance system the Hoistipulator uses a variable speed up/down control. The advantage is in operations with widely varying part weights or when the operation calls for the addition or removal of weight from the part.
As with our standard units, the end effectors can be widely customized to the job and the tool can roll, pitch, or spin the load.
In a further advancement, the Hoistipulator + Plus allows the load to be locked in position in space so workers can perform operations on the part. Grinding, welding, drilling, fitting are all operations that can be performed while the Hoistipulator firmly holds the part in the air.
