Robot arm tool changer is faster and stronger

Robot arm tool changer is faster and stronger
Stäubli's new MPS 630 automatic tool changing system for robot arms can handle tools up to 630kg and withstand the high bending and torsional moments created by fast moving robots, significantly expanding the suitable applications. All the services required by the tool are simultaneously connected and the new, electric or pneumatically activated locking mechanism ensures fail safe security.

The facility to automatically change the tool employed on a robot arm from, for example, a welding gun to a rivet gun or gripper, significantly increases the utilisation of each robot arm and can often eliminate the need for investment in additional robots. Additional operations usually require additional robots; but with the facility to quickly and automatically change the tools on a robot arm, the need for a second or even third robot is eliminated, significantly reducing the capital investment required, improving payback and often reducing the overall cell footprint.
