Lightweight End-of-Arm-Tooling

Aug. 7, 2016
FIPA’s latest custom EOAT solution features four flat vacuum cups for the dynamic handling of oily metal sheets, a heavy-duty ejector for the highest possible process reliability, and a carbon fiber frame that delivers a superior strength-to-weight ratio.

Designed for FANUC America Corporation, this 15-pound EOAT solution extends the range of parts that their robots can handle, and helps maximize efficiency. It features partially black anodized aluminum components for improved wear-resistance and ease of maintenance. The flat vacuum cups enable the process-secure and slip-free handling of oily metal sheets in a variety of automotive, metal processing, and mechanical and plant engineering applications, and are especially suited for use in auto body and vehicle construction. The heavy-duty ejector delivers high-reliability vacuum generation in harsh environments — including the automotive manufacturing, building material, timber, and packaging industries — and is suitable for use in applications that handle light- to medium-weight workpieces; the ejectors accurately compensate for compressed air fluctuations between 3 bar (43.5 psi) and 6 bar (87 psi) to provide process reliability, and feature a compact and robust rectangular aluminum housing that enables the space-saving parallel block assembly of multiple ejectors in both centralized and decentralized vacuum systems. The series is available in units weighing between 0.1 lb (48 g) and 0.5 lb (225 g), and with suction power spanning 30 Nl/min to 130 Nl/min.
