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.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
