End-effectors are attached to the end of the robot arm and are the part of the robotic system that actually interacts with parts and materials. A variety of robotic end effectors exist, each suited for a specific task or application. Some examples include grippers, welding guns, vacuum pumps, blowtorches, and drills.
End effectors are also known as:
- Robotic accessories
- Robotic peripherals
- Robotic tools
- End of arm tooling (EOAT)
