Explore the exciting solutions that Smartshift Robotics offers for every industry and application:  Tool Changers, Robot Base.

Smartshift's Tool Changers

 

Manually changing tools on your industrial or collaborative robot is time-consuming and costly. A tool changer is attached to the robot's wrist allowing the robotic cell to seamlessly switch from one tool to another.

 

With a tool changer, you can have multiple tools in the same work area to complete a set of tasks. If your operation requires assembly, testing, and material handling, the tool changer can take each individual tool and switch one after the other to complete the required tasks.

 

Adding a tool changeover system is an easy, low-hanging fruit opportunity to automate,

especially with collaborative systems.

Smartshift's patented tool changers are universally compatible with almost all lightweight industrial and collaborative robots and tools. These lightweight, easy-to-connect tool changers improve productivity and quality with high speed and precision.

With Smartshift Robotics dovetail-type tool changer, you can have a very precise means of mounting a robot and easy removal without voiding warranties. You can use a collaborative robot in multiple places, where they would normally move a person around. If your facility is experiencing labor shortages, a tool changer from Smartshift Robotics is a smart step towards automation.

Smartshift's Robot Base

For the ultimate versatility of your robot, a robot base set from Smartshift Robotics is a cost-effective solution.  With a robot base set, you can move your robot to other workstations without reprogramming.  For instance, your robot welds for the first few hours, and then the next few hours your robot is at the assembly line -- without reprogramming.

Smartshift's robot base sets provide fast and accurate movement, exact zero-positioning every time, are easy to use, and weigh 1.6 to 3.6 kg.  The base is a standard flange that can be mounted on nearly all types of robots.  The robot base set includes one robot base plate and two base plates. 

Smartshift Robotics Robot Base System

Smartshift's robot base sets can be used in all collaborative applications:

  • Assembly - Screw and nut driving, inserting, mounting, and positioning

  • Machine Tending - CNC, injection molding, cutting, metal casting, press, and processes

  • Material Finishing - Painting, polishing, sanding, drilling, and milling

  • Palletizing / Packing - Sorting, packaging, labeling, and palletizing

  • Quality - Testing, inspection, and measuring

  • Welding - Laser, ultrasonic, soldering, and spot welding

The benefits of adding a Smartshift Robot Base System include:

  • Use one robot at multiple workstations

  • Accurate installation in seconds

  • Exact zero-positioning - anywhere - anytime

  • Repeat the same operation at a new workstation without reprogramming

  • Easy to connect and use
