SMARTSHIFT Robotics' universal tool changer system allows for fast and easy deployment/redeployment of tools, managing multiple tasks in production.
A tool changer is a device that's fixed on the wrist of the robot, and allows the robotic cell to switch easily and quickly switch between tools. This means having several tools in the one area to completing a particular set of tasks. If an operation requires assembly, testing, and material handling, the tool changer takes each tool and switches them one after the other to complete the required tasks.
SMARTSHIFT's automatic tool changer clutch enables the robot to change to new tasks and tools, replace a damaged or worn-out tool in seconds, and obtain shorter cycle time with non-stop productivity for any application.
SMARTSHIFT Tool Changer Features:
Enables robots to automate changing of tools in seconds and perform various work tasks in all collaborative applications.
Changes faulty or worn-out tools within seconds without stopping, minimizing production downtime.
Saves 15-20 minutes each time tool needs to be changed.
Eliminates the need for specially designed tool changer.
Gives greater use of robot payload. Weighs only 100-400g.
Modular. Can be upgraded from a range of manual and automatic clutches; enabling mechanical, pneumatic, and electrical connection.
Contributes to an improvement in product quality and productivity with fast tool changing tools that are of high speed/high precision.
The patented SMARTSHIFT design and functionality provides a new standard for tool changing in the robotic industry.
With universal compatibility, low weight and easy-to-connect design, SMARTSHIFT can be integrated with almost all lightweight industrial and collaborative robots and tools.
This includes the Universal Robots Line availablehere.
Painting, polishing, sanding, drilling and milling and other tasks is ideal with a tool changer as it operates with consistently flow and precisely placement. You can easily operate and switch from polishing to painting with the tool pockets.
Laser, ultrasonic, soldering and spot welding can be improved by our tool changer that secures high quality and precision. You can add the tool pocket, so the robot can operate and switch between tools and tasks autonomously in the production line.
Testing, inspection and measuring can be difficult for workers to do repeatedly. With tool changer clutch, you can continually maintain high quality inspection and testing by high precision and consistency.
Screw and nut driving, inserting, mounting and positioning and produce repeatable accurate assembly processes with high precision and high speed is one of SMARTSHIFT key features.
CNC, injection moulding, cutting, metal casting, press and processes can be done easily with tool changer clutch that consistently and repeatedly follow exact processes without risk of errors.
Palletizing / Packing
Sorting, packaging, labelling and palletizing you need a quick tool changer clutch, that assists different tools to pick up a wide range of materials. Makes warehousing and supply chain operations faster and more efficient.
