End of Arm Tooling
What is End of Arm Tooling?
End Effectors also called End-Of-Arm-Tooling (EOAT), are devices that are able to complete a wide variety of tasks, and are attached to the end of an overhead lifting system. These devices are designed to act as the wrists/hand of the structure and allow for the system to interact with the environment.
End of Arm Tooling & R&D ERGO
With over 25 years of End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) experience we can design, engineer, build, install, and service custom systems designed with your specific application in mind. We combine innovation with experience in order to create an infinite variety of end effectors based on what you need for them to accomplish.
With our complete design, engineering, fabrication, and installation teams, we are able to rigorously test and refine our systems in order to create solutions for whatever task you wish to accomplish whether that is improving productivity or an ergonomic solution. Over the past 25 years we have developed strong partnerships with many major international suppliers; this has allowed for us to select the best materials/products in order to create the most innovative solutions for the industries that we service (Manufacturing and Automotive, Food and Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Hospital, Warehouse and Retail).
As previously mentioned, the applications of an end effector are practically limitless but here are some applications that you may or may not have thought of:
- Picking up a product from a conveyor and placing it onto a pallet
- Lifting up and moving car parts onto an assembly line
- Picking up an item and twisting, turning or rotating in order for it to be placed in the correct position
- Holding an item in place in order to be properly assembled i.e. attaching a car door to a car frame
- Ensuring employee safety by reducing the amount of physical labour required of them i.e. twisting, bending and lifting
- Completing repetitive actions quickly and efficiently i.e. stacking boxes
- And So Much More
Gripper End Effector Systems come in a variety of styles, though it is the simple two-finger grippers which are used by the vast majority of industrial overhead lifting systems.
These systems are ideal for moving large steel components like sheet metal, automotive or construction parts, machine dies and hydraulic cylinders. As long as the item is magnetic, then a magnet end lifter should be your first choice of end effector.
These Pick and Place End of Arm Tooling systems specialize in moving one item from one location to another. Pick and Place Lifting Devices Devices are perfect for companies that have to load or unload many products. They help to increase the efficiency of the work place while also decreasing the number of work place injuries.
Specializing in picking up and moving items, these clamp end effectors have two metal pieces that tighten in order to be able to lift up the desired item. Clamp End Effectors are able to handle a large variety of different items making them useful for many applications.
