Robotic tooling enables tailor-made automated packaging systems

Robotic tooling enables tailor-made automated packaging systems
Modular components allows users to customize their end-of-arm tools to fit the task.

A new line of robotic end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) equipment is designed to empower customers to build automated systems to fit their specific applications. The line of 600 components from Piab includes standard products in a variety of sizes and dimensions.

The modular components enable users to build automation tooling systems to fit their specific applications. The items can be used to handle fragile products and materials or produce fine design details. Packaging producers can choose from a full, flexible assortment of EOAT components to quickly put together an automated handling/gripping system configured for a particular packaging or palletizing job.
