Robot tool changer makes the application of robot more flexible by automatically changing different end effectors or peripherals. These end effectors and peripherals include, for example, spot welding guns, grippers, vacuum tools, pneumatic and electric motors, etc. The tool quick change device, also known as the gun change plate, includes a robot side to be installed on the robot arm, and a tool side to be installed on the end effector. The tool changer can connect different media such as gas, electrical signal, liquid, video, ultrasound, etc. from the robot arm to the end effector.
Features of gun changing plate:
1. Production line replacement can be completed in a few seconds;
2. Maintenance and repair tools can be replaced quickly, greatly reducing downtime;
3. By using more than one end effector in the application, the flexibility is increased;
4. Use the automatic exchange of single function end effector to replace the original heavy and complex multi-function tooling actuator.
Joint robot tool quick change device is divided into the robot side (master side) and tool side (tool side). The robot side is installed on the front arm of the robot, and the tool side is installed on the executive tool (tools are welding tongs, grippers, etc.). The tool quick change device can quickly realize the communication of electricity, gas and liquid between the human side of the machine and the executive tool. One robot side can be used with multiple tool sides according to the actual situation of users to increase the flexible manufacturing of robot production line, increase the efficiency of robot production line and reduce the production cost.
