Robotic Tool Changers: Top 5 Problems

Robotic tool changers are used on robots to change end effectors so one robot can do multiple tasks. It can enable switching between grippers or other end-of-arm tools (such as a finishing tool or welding gun). A robotic tool changer is composed of two sides that are used to standardize the interface between the robot wrist and the different robot tools. This article presents the 5 main problems of using tool changers on a robot to switch between different grippers.
