What is a tool changer?

A tool changer is a device that is fixed on the wrist of the robot and allows the robotic cell to switch from one tool to another. This means that you can have several tools in the same area to complete a particular set of tasks. For example, if an operation requires assembly, testing and material handling, the tool changer can take each tool individually and switch them one after the other to complete its required tasks.


When do you need a tool changer?

Robotic tool changer is useful devices when you only have one robot station to carry out different processes.
