The majority of the robot tooling we supply on turnkey robotic solutions are designed and manufactured at our design and manufacturing facility in Gloucester.
Complex Robotic Tooling
Tooling can be simple vacuum pick up or complex vacuum tooling with segmented zoning for multi drop applications, providing the product and application is suitable for the use of vacuum.
Bespoke Mechanical Grippers
Mechanical grippers are usually more bespoke due to either the nature of the products to be handled or for the operation or task that needs to be carried out by the robotic solution. These gripper solutions have included the separation of products, alignment of products or stacks, rotating of products or even multi functional so that they can also include the picking of secondary items such as pallets or layer sheets.
In-House Tooling Design
Our design team develops concepts to suit the customers’ individual needs. The concepts are then modelled in our 3D design software where they can be stress tested using Finite Element Analysis. Once a tool has been designed it can be imported into Robot Studio to simulate the robot cycle to ensure the cycle times and movements meet the specification.
Finally once all assessments have been completed the tool can be released for manufacture, this method ensures we can build a suitable tool solution first time without the need to build and develop multiple models, saving costs on both material and labour.
