When you need a flexible solution to your operation’s material handling challenges, look no further than hydraulic manipulators from TDA Buddy! Known for their versatility, they offer a wide range of benefits over full automation. Fully automated, robotic systems are typically great at what they do… but very limited in their scope. They can lift an object… but only lift an object. They can rotate an object… but only rotate an object. And forget about repurposing them to work with different objects. That’s just not what they’re designed for!

3/26/2018

In the industry, hydraulic manipulators are known for being adaptable, dependable, and straightforward solutions. Fully automated solutions, on the other hand, are known for being very good at a single, narrow application. Whether they’re being used to position products, lift them onto pallets, or pitch them at an angle for inspection, robots are limited in their applications. Because hydraulic manipulators take their instructions from an operator, they are afforded more flexibility: they can be repurposed and reused depending on your operation’s current needs.
