Automatic quick-change system for small robots

SWS-001 with less interfering contours is currently the smallest automatic robot-changing system on the market

07-23-2013 - SCHUNK enlarges its standardized robot accessories program to allow users the full use of small robot's efficiency potentials. The extremely flat quick-change system SWS-001 with less interfering contours is currently the smallest automatic robot-changing system on the market. At a handling weight of up to 1,4 kg, it is ideal for small robot types, where the grippers and tools are automatically exchanged within seconds.


Four integrated air feed-throughs, and up to eight integrated electric feed-throughs ensure a reliable energy supply of the coupled modules. A patented self-retaining locking system ensures that robots and effectors stay connected, in case of a sudden energy failure. Due to the ISO connecting flange it can be fast and easily connected to various robots. With 22 series and 2,000 variants, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems offers the world's largest variety of quick-change systems. The standardized module program ranges from miniature change-systems up to heavy-duty change systems for payloads of up to 1,350 kg.
