Have some general questions? See our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Save time and money by having EMI’s EOAT engineers design your end-of-arm tooling at no charge, then build it yourself. You only pay for the parts and there is no obligation to buy them from us.

  • A 3D model of the part in .STEP or Parasolid is preferred. Alternatively send a 3D model or 2D CAD of the mold.

  • Contact EOATengineering@EMIcorp.com to set up a login and password to send files with Sharefile.

  • EOAT designs typically take 2-4 weeks from the time we have all the required information. The lead time is often dependent on complexity and work load. Contact engineering for more information.

  • Our engineering department will contact you if we need more information.

  • Once we receive your purchase orders, we will provide you with a 3D model of the EOAT.

  • EMI can manufacture custom items, such as robot mounting plates and 3D printed parts fingers, to meet your complete EOAT requirements.
  • Request a Maintenance Kit for your EOAT Build!

    You can choose to build the tooling yourself, or you can take advantage of EMI’s EOAT Build Service. Our experienced EOAT engineers and builders will work with you to design and build a precise, reliable tooling to best suit your application.

    Note: Your assembled EOAT is tested before it leaves our facility; however, final adjustments may still need to be made once it has been installed on the robot.
