Piab is introducing a new line of robotic End-Of-Arm Tooling (EOAT) products, enabling customers to build automated systems that perfectly fit their specific applications. Piab’s complete set of off-the-shelf standard components can be used to solve the real automation challenges facing manufacturers. Made up of several different families of components, the new EOAT line offers standard products in a broad range of sizes and dimensions, resulting in a modular automation technology set comprising an impressive 600 different pieces of equipment.
“Our new EOAT line is a bit like a Lego technic set. It enables our customers to quickly build the specific automation tooling systems that they need for whatever application challenges they encounter on their manufacturing floors,” explains Anton Kullh, Vice President of Piab’s Robotic Gripping Division.
Drawing on the expertise and experience of the Robotic Gripping Division’s state-of-the-art development and manufacturing units in the United States and Germany, Piab has put together a set of standard components designed to meet the requirements of any automated handling process in a wide variety of industries.
The modular nature of Piab’s EOAT components offers a high level of customization that is perfect for manufacturers of, for instance, injection molded plastic parts for automobiles. Often quite fragile and featuring fine design details, such parts require automation tools of precision and flexibility. Piab’s EOAT line helps manufacturers to meet such specific challenges.
The EOAT component line is also perfectly suited for the automation challenges facing the packaging industry. A full and flexible assortment of modular EOAT components makes it possible to rapidly put together an automated handling/gripping system that is perfectly configured for any packaging and/or palletizing task. The EOAT line offers products of the performance required for high speed automated robotic systems as well as for a variety of materials.
Offering customers the innovation, expertise and precision they expect, Piab’s EOAT components are engineered and built in one of the company’s world class production facilities.
