Fast tool change with Nordbo's magnetic tool changer and a UR Cobot
Most processes are multi-step and require a variety of tools. Generally, a robot will only have one tool attached to the arm, greatly limiting the number of tasks it can perform. Instead of using a second robot, an automatic tool changing system, like the Nordbo Magnetic Tool Changer, can be implemented and allow the robot to perform multiple disparate tasks. The Magnetic Tool Changer allows a robot to use two or more tools and quickly change between them. In this example use case, a cobot from Universal Robots is decked out with the Nordbo Magnetic Tool Changer, allowing the robot to easing switch between two different tools. With access to a larger variety of tools, the Universal Robots cobot can achieve much more!
