Definition


End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) refers to any device that is attached to the end of the robot's arm that allows the robot to interact with parts in the environment and assists in the completion of a task. End of arm tooling may vary greatly between applications depending on the parts being handled and the actions the robot is required to perform. 


EOAT Options


  • Rethink Robotics offers Five (5) ClickSmart Gripper Kits: that contain all the components you need to quickly build and customize gripping solutions for a wide range of tasks.
  • ClickSmart Plate kit for third parties to develop on
  • Sawyer has an industry standard ISO 9409-1-40-4-M6 tool plate for mounting custom designed end effectors.

Tooling Set Up
