How TDA Buddy Can Increase the Efficiency of Your Manufacturing or Industrial Facility


At TDA Buddy, we’ve been building manipulator systems since 1985. Having provided thousands of manufacturers with custom systems to improve their plant’s workflow, we’re confident in our ability to help you increase your efficiency. In addition to that, we pride ourselves on providing cost-saving alternatives to expensive and technically challenging robotic systems.

Like robots, our line of industrial manipulators assist your employees in the safe, efficient movement of your facility’s material and equipment. Unlike robots, our manipulators are powered by shop air, don’t require complicated programming or intricate maintenance and don’t need dedicated enclosures. Most importantly, they do the same job and are less expensive!

The core purpose of TDA Buddy’s industrial manipulators is to allow for the simple completion of common tasks, such as pallet loading and the pitching, rotating, turning, yawing, lowering and rolling of equipment and material. Capable of lifting small materials and materials weighing up to 1000 pounds, the flexibility of our industrial manipulators allows them to be utilized in a range of applications. As a result, you save money by avoiding the need to order expensive specialty equipment.

Our goal in designing our manipulators is to provide the industry with a safe, cost-efficient piece of equipment that can handle the daily challenges of the production line. With the ability to move, hold and accurately place materials quickly, you can be confident that your line is operating at maximum efficiency and, more important, that you are cutting costs without reducing output.

At TDA Buddy, we’ve emerged as the acknowledged leader in developing and manufacturing manipulator systems for a wide range of industries. Whether you need a pneumatic manipulator, an articulating arm or custom end effectors, we’re certain that our catalog has the equipment that you need to increase your plant’s efficiency.
