Material Handling Questions
I am looking for a manufacturer/supplier that sells tool cribs for robot End Of Arm Tools (EOATs). I am looking to acquire 2 identical cribs that will each hold 1 EOAT, and can be mounted on a plate which is then mounted to a table-top. Any suggestions or recommendations on where I would be able to purchase or search for such a tool crib?

Casey, Do you want a crib or tool holder? A crib is a gated space for holding and securing non-cost-of-goods inventory components for distribution to employees, typically. Items such as grinding discs, hammers, gloves or maintenance inventory for repair and maintenance of equipment. A tool changer or tool holder is for placement and retrieval of tools by automation or in your case, a robot. There may be an option from the EOAT manufacturer or we could possibly build you a solution. Happy to help if you have more details. Regards, matt
