Manufacturing environments often require robust and dependable robotic end-of-arm tooling in order to prevent damage and downtime from failed equipment as a result of dust and debris. This is especially true in manufacturing environments that generate a lot of dirt or even those where corrosive materials are handled.

When you have a challenging manufacturing environment, it’s essential to have durable and efficient robotic tooling for your processes. That’s why RAD robotic collision sensors are designed to work in harsh manufacturing environments, providing reliable performance and durability, preventing downtime, and increasing productivity.

Durable and Fully Sealed Sensors

A failed collision sensor can quickly disrupt your operations. Since collision sensors are designed to protect robotic tooling by sensing a collision and stopping the robot to reduce the impact, a broken sensor can quickly lead to costly damage and downtime.

RAD’s collision sensors are fully sealed, so dust and dirt cannot get inside the equipment. Since they are fully sealed, they can even be compatible with hygienic manufacturing environments, such as food manufacturing settings.

Our pneumatic high-angle and stainless steel collision sensors have bodies made with anodized aluminum and internal contact surfaces made of hardened tool steel, making them corrosion-resistant for even the most challenging manufacturing situations.

Viton Seals and Debris Shield Options

Our pneumatic collision sensors come with different options to ensure the sensor will work efficiently and provide maximum performance and longevity for your particular applications.

You have the option for debris shields, which are necessary for machining manufacturing environments or settings where the sensors have the potential to be damaged by paint, shards, or other debris. The debris shield keeps the sensor protected, so it has a longer lifespan and minimal risk of damage.

RAD also allows the option for Viton seals on certain collision sensors, which are ideal for harsh manufacturing environments of up to 400 degrees and are resistant to corrosive substances and extreme pressure.

Warrantied Products and Quick Repairs

All of RAD’s products, including our collision sensors, come with a standard 12-month warranty against manufacturing defects. We also repair our own products and provide a quick evaluation and turnaround time for repairs, as well as fast shipping for orders.

Before ordering your collision sensor, we invite you to contact us so that we can ensure you choose the sensor that will work best for your specific manufacturing environment. Whether you need a robust option for a harsh environment or a spring-loaded sensor, we can help you make the right choice.

Robots play a crucial role in manufacturing environments, so when a robot or robot tooling goes down, it can cost companies a significant amount in downtime and repairs. As such, it’s imperative that your supplier be able to repair or replace your robotic end-of-arm tooling, also called robotic tooling or robot tooling, in short order.

When you have robotic tooling from RAD, you get a quick evaluation and turnaround time for all our products, which helps minimize downtime and lost revenue. Here’s how RAD works with clients to accelerate the repair process so they can restore operations as soon as possible.

Fast Turnaround Time for Evaluations and Repairs

To reduce any delays in the process, RAD will evaluate your end-of-arm tooling the same day that the tool arrives to us. This way, we can let you know what the issue is and give you an estimated time to complete the repair.

We aim to complete each repair as quickly as possible without compromising the quality of our work, and we make every effort to restore your RAD end-of-arm tooling to its original product specification.

Overall, you can expect your robotic tooling to be repaired and shipped back to you within five business days.

The Option to Have the Tooling Repaired or Replaced

RAD gives you the option to continue with the repair, get a replacement, or have the tooling returned to you as it came to us.

We understand that not every repair will be cost-effective or feasible for every customer. As soon as we receive the tooling, we will evaluate it and contact you with an estimate to repair it. You can then choose if you’d like to proceed with the repair, have the product returned to you, or replace it with a completely new unit.

Having this option for your RAD tooling allows you to quickly determine what you need to restore operations and get the process underway as soon as possible.

Technically Qualified Service Representatives

Our team knows there are few things more frustrating than contacting a repair or service company and speaking with someone who is not familiar with the tooling or does not know how to help you. That’s why RAD only employs technically qualified service representatives so we don’t waste your time or ours.

Each technician is familiar with RAD products and will assist you with the repair process and ensure a positive resolution for your needs with the highest level of customer service. We even have spare RAD parts we can ship to you, including select legacy products, so that you can repair your unit on-site.
