RAD Robotic Tool Changers allow robots* the flexibility to change end-effectors (e.g. grippers, vacuum cup tooling, pneumatic and electric motors, deburring tools, weld guns, etc.) and other peripheral tooling automatically during a manufacturing or assembly process much as a human is capable of operating different tools.
Robotic Tool Changers consist of two mating parts (a master and a tool) that have been designed to lock together automatically. The master side of the tool changer mounts to the robot; the tool side of the tool changer mounts to the tooling (e.g. grippers, deburring tools, etc.).
