Robotic Tool Changer Systems

Stäubli offers innovative tool changing systems for robots, which are tailored to the requirements of automated production processes. The tool changing systems can be designed as plug & play solutions.

"Automatic tool changing systems make a decisive contribution to the productivity of robot systems," said a company spokesperson. "If robots are able to independently change grippers and tools, the flexibility knows no bounds. As a result, robot tasks can be newly defined and made significantly more complex. With the fully-automatic changing systems, unproductive off-peak times can be minimized, and the degree of automation and autonomy of robot cells can be increased, thereby enabling maximization of the overall system productivity."

Stäubli offers solutions for every load carrying capacity:

  • The locking unit MPS 130 is compact and suited for load carrying capacities up to 100 kg
  • The locking unit MPS 260 is light and compact, but still offers a maximum payload of 350 kg
  • The powerful locking unit MPS 630 is suitable for body construction in the automotive industry.
  • The MPS 1530 is designed for very high load carrying capacities and offers even more module spaces for media and energy transfer.

Stäubli develops and produces all system components, coupling modules and the associated peripherals in-house.

The tool changer systems are compatible with all conventional bus systems and can be operated with ProfiNet, ProfiBus, DeviceNet, InterBus and more. The signal transfer can take place via copper wire or fiber optic cable.
