End-of-Arm Tooling for press tending

Your press tending and metal handling is only as good as its EOAT

Hingham, MA - With many years of experience in metal handling across a variety of industries, including deep experience within the automotive industry, Piab understands your many complex design challenges. Heavy-duty materials long reaches and multi-tasking are no match for purpose-built End-of Arm Tooling.


Robots have grown in popularity for metal handling applications because of their ability to manipulate, tilt or rotate metal blanks throughout the production process. Fixed with End-of-Arm Tooling, these robots can lift, position, and separate heavy, contoured, or oily blanks. Precise gripping components provide added designed flexibility to stack, crate pack or palletize finished parts. But that's just scratching the surface: we've developed solutions from boom-type robotic applications where we can adjust the gripper on-the-fly to safety hold-down clamps for high speed applications.

Whether you need to unload a press, de-stack blanks, or perform a secondary operation such as bar code labelling or date stamping, End-of-Arm Tooling can. Our EOATs can move your press stamping process toward safe, secure and repeatable blank transfers and placements.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
