Increase efficiency. Customize with ease.
FDM technology provides a faster, more efficient way to make and
modify robotic end-of-arm tools (EOAT), also known as end effectors.
Instead of machining, EOATs are 3D printed using strong
thermoplastic materials. 3D printing’s freedom from manufacturability
constraints lets you optimize the design for the application.
FDM vs traditional manufacturing.
FDM 3D printed tools provide a number of
advantages over traditionally machined parts.
Leverage the advantages of faster EOAT ideation and creation with 3D printing, avoiding the lead time to machine or outsource them. Print your end-of-arm tool overnight and have it working for you the following day.
Cut their lead times from 20 days to 3.
Make lighter end-of-arm tools that require less power to operate. FDM technology uses strong but lightweight materials ranging from engineering-grade ABS to high-strength thermoplastics.
Reduced weight from 35lbs to 3lbs.
Print EOATs on demand, avoiding the material and lead time costs of traditional manufacturing. Customization and design changes are as easy as updating the CAD model and printing another tool.
Cut production costs by 85%.
