Key Benefits


This product cannot be sold in Europe or Singapore.

RAD’s Automatic Tool Changers save you money by enabling your robot* to automatically change tools – eliminating the labor intensive and non-productive downtime associated with tool changeover.


RAD’s Automatic Tool Changers offer:

  • Flexibility – the ability to use more than one end-effector in an application
  • Peace of mind – a fail-safe locking mechanism prevents master and tool plate separation if air pressure is lost
  • Quick change over – production lines switched in minutes rather than hours
  • Uptime – tools requiring maintenance or repair changed out in seconds to keep the production line up and running
  • Safety – tools are exchanged without operator intervention
  • Pass-through utilities – e.g. electrical signals, air, water, etc. from robot to tool

Operating Principle
The master plate, installed on the robot* arm, locks to the tool plate with a pneumatically-driven locking mechanism. Air pressure must be applied to the unlocking port to release the tool plate thus preventing master and tool plate separation if air pressure is lost. Gravity is used to separate the master from the tool plate**.

 

* Can also be used on CNC machines, gantry systems, and pick & place devices

** On the lightest model, the TC-5, a special push-piston is used to prevent sticking while unlocking (a common problem when working with the light payloads this model is designed for).
