Custom EOAT for Cobots from EMI

custom EMI EOAT for cobots

EMI EOAT Engineering is available to help develop your next Custom Cobot Application. If you need a single vacuum cup attached to your cobot, or a two-sided EOAT for ultrasonic welding EMI has the support, inventory and experience to provide a solution that is cost effective yet durable and tailored to your application needs.

Below you can see some custom designs that have been developed by EMI from the ground up: Vacuum end effectors using OnRobot’s electric vacuum generators, dual gripper setups for machine tending, two-sided insert-loading EOAT for plastic injection molding, and pick-and-place via vacuum or soft touch grippers.

Contact our EOAT Engineers to discuss your next project; whether you’re getting the first cobot in-house, or if they’re being implemented across your facility.

gimatic quick changer for cobots

3D Printed Vacuum EOAT and Manual Quick Changer

3D Printed Vacuum EOAT are the perfect approach for Cobot applications that require higher payload for part handling. Using a Gimatic QC75 Tool Changer provides easy pneumatic and electric circuit coupling.

The 3D printed frame is designed to order and can incorporate suspensions, vacuum posts or direct-mounted vacuum cups. EMI offers the largest in-stock selection of vacuum cups.

Find our more about the Quick Changers for Cobots , 3D Printed EOAT , and the Vacuum Cups we offer.

OnRobot electric vacuum generator with EMI EOAT

EMI and OnRobot

EMI stocks and supports OnRobot's line of end effectors including the VGC10, an electric vacuum generator. No compressed air is needed! Compatible with 3D printed, extruded aluminum and laser cut plate EOATs using EMI’s extensive offering of components and Engineering support.

Visit our Cobot Mounting section to see plates that are compatible with the VGC10 and extruded aluminum profile EOAT framing. You can also learn more about 3D printing an EOAT for your existing VGC10. Learn more.

sawyer with dual cobot eoats and parts

2-SIDED VACUUM EOAT WITH SELF-CONTAINED PART ROTATION

This custom end-effector uses independent vacuum circuits on opposite sides to grip 2 different parts out of an Injection Molding Machine, for placement into a secondary assembly process. Before placement, self-contained 180° rotary action is required for proper reorientation of a part. Once the secondary assembly is complete, the EOAT removes the final assembly.

Onboard pneumatic valves control air flow to cartridge vacuum generators, and part confirmation is achieved through vacuum monitor switches. All I/O operates through ClickSmart connectors at Sawyer’s wrist.

doosan with dual cobot eoats and parts

Two-Gripper EOAT with Quick Changer

A custom EOAT to handle a singular part using two pneumatically-powered grippers for added security and positional consistency. A V-groove nest assists in guiding the EOAT into position during robot setup and locating the part during pick and place operations. On-gripper inductive sensors provide part confirmation to the robot through electrical connectors on the quick changer, while pneumatic pass-through in the quick changer automatically connects the robot-provided air to operate the grippers.

INSERT LOAD APPLICATION

This is a traditional insert load application for plastic injection molding. The cobot uses a custom 2-sided EOAT to accurately place metal inserts into the mold, then picks the finished parts. Insert-Load side of the EOAT with part detection. Part-picking side of the EOAT with soft touch angular grippers.

Smaller than the Q# 8210 VG10, the VGC10 can fit into tight environments to extend your automation possibilities. And at half the weight of the VG10 but with the same payload, the VGC10 can lift small, odd-shaped, and heavy objects even with a smaller robot arm. The VGC10 features two independently controlled air channels that allow it to act as a dual gripper with pick-up and release in the same action, further increasing efficiency and reducing cycle time. With no compressor or air supply needed, this compact electrical gripper is easy to move, and simple programming makes it quick and easy to redeploy for greater production flexibility.

  • Built-in electric vacuum generator.
  • Weight: 0.814kg / 1.79 lbs
  • Flexible electric vacuum gripper with unlimited customization fits all your application needs.
  • Compact, lightweight gripper is perfect for tight spaces but with plenty of power for objects up to 15kg.
  • No external air supply needed.
  • Integrated software.
  • May require a Compute Box with some Robot models.
