Do I need tooling?
Tooling devices are the hands of an automated system. They are used to grip and manipulate, performing the precise motions necessary for every application. End of arm tooling (EOAT), often attach directly to robots, while other fixed tooling configurations, such as clamps, work independent of robots to hold or move parts.
Well-crafted tooling will increase the speed, accuracy and longevity to your automated system. Determining which tooling option best fits your application needs is one of the most important decisions you will make. Grippers, vacuum cups, pliers, fingers, 3-jaw chucks, bag grippers, high speed spindles, parallel cylinders and clamps are just a few of the tooling options available.
