Pneumatic 3-D Part Manipulators
TDA Buddy custom designs and manufactures industrial pneumatic manipulators that help a single worker perform even precise material handling placement with ease. The 3-D part manipulators go beyond the usual pick and place tasks. They can grip a part up to 400 lbs., roll, pitch, or yaw it if necessary, hold it rigid, and place it accurately for the next operation.
The manipulators feature a unique neutral balance technology that allows the parts to float, making them feel weightless. TDA Buddy pneumatic manipulators are available with various types of grippers to lift most any part configuration, including metal blanks with holes. End effectors (tooling) are offered with vacuum, mechanical, or pneumatically actuated grippers. The manipulators feature a standard 10’ reach radius, a vertical travel of 64”, and rotation up to 360°. Mounting options include fixed floor, fixed overhead, overhead rail, press face mounted and a portable base plate for forklift repositioning.
