With many years of experience in metal handling across a variety of industries, including deep experience within the automotive industry, Piab understands many complex design challenges. Heavy-duty materials long reaches and multi-tasking are no match for purpose-built End-of Arm Tooling.
Robots have grown in popularity for metal handling applications because of their ability to manipulate, tilt or rotate metal blanks throughout the production process. Fixed with End-of-Arm Tooling, these robots can lift, position, and separate heavy, contoured, or oily blanks.
Precise gripping components provide added designed flexibility to stack, crate pack or palletize finished parts. But that’s just scratching the surface: the company says it has developed solutions from boom-type robotic applications where we can adjust the gripper on-the-fly to safety hold-down clamps for high speed applications.
Whether users need to unload a press, de-stack blanks, or perform a secondary operation such as bar code labelling or date stamping, End-of-Arm Tooling can. Piab’s EOATs can move press stamping process toward safe, secure and repeatable blank transfers and placements.
