Our hydraulically powered manipulators are uniquely designed to hold and maneuver parts in 3 dimensions. So, they are best suited for heavy-duty industrial material handling applications. We can manufacture hydraulic manipulators with part loading capacities up to 1000 lbs. Additionally, the throttle style control feature of our hydraulic manipulators facilitates variable speed motion control.

TDA Buddy’s energy-efficient hydraulic manipulators are powered by on-demand hydraulic pump systems that conserve energy and pump life. So, depending on your specific part handling requirements, we custom build hydraulic manipulators with hydraulic cylinder grippers and special fixtures. Further, our expert engineers can turn a two- or three-person material handling job into a one-person job.

We specialize in manufacturing 3D manipulators in floor/ceiling mounted, portable base, press mounted, or overhead rail configurations. Moreover, our hydraulic manipulator systems make it easy for your parts to be flipped, rotated, or pitched up and down. And, offering custom solutions for your rack loading/unloading, press unloading, line transferring, and pallet-loading needs is not a problem for us. From project planning and design through installation, TDA Buddy will work with you to offer simple as well as cost effective solutions for complex part handling problems.
