Don't restrict your robot to one tool. A tool changer gives your robot the ability to switch EOAT
(end of arm tooling
) automatically with ease and speed.
This feature alone will save time and add flexibility to any robotic system. Tool changers are designed for longevity and top-level repeatability.
How do you decide which robotic tool changer is right for your tools, robot, system, part? There are number of things to consider when choosing a robotic tool changer:
- Capacity: The strength of tool changers varies according to their moment capacity. Make sure your tool changer can work well with your robot, tooling, part.
- Environment: You must consider environment factors like exposure to chemicals and temperature changes, and make sure your tool changer can withstand them.
- Air/Power Supply: Make sure you have met all the pneumatic and electrical needs of your tool changer. Tool changers should be as reliable and safe as the robot they are connected to. They should have safety features that keep tooling secure regardless of power and air supply failures.
