End of Arm Tooling

Designed for Collaborative

HC10 Robot with Gripper

Collaborative robotics presents unique challenges for end of arm tooling (EOAT) that may be unfamiliar to those familiar with conventional robotic EOAT. Worker safety is always a primary consideration in any robotic application but there are more stringent requirements for collaborative applications. End of arm tooling exists for many applications, such as assembly, dispensing or labling. Each collaborative robotic application requires a specific type of tool that must comply with collaborative robotic safety guidelines. The most common type of EOAT for collaborative robotics is a gripper.

Other Types of End of Arm Tooling

Your robotic process may require a type of tool with different safety considerations based on the design of the tool and work being performed. In every case, all collaborative safety measures must be observed in the design of the tool and operation of the collaborative robot. If you are unsure if your EOAT is suitable for collaborative operation, contact us. We can help you assess whether your tooling/process can be modified for compliance, or if you should consider different tooling.
