Advanced End of Arm Tooling for Depalletizing and Palletizing

Overview of End Of Arm Tooling

End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) are the mechanisms attached to the end of a robot arm. They are what allow robots to interact with objects.

It is crucial for enhancing the functionality and efficiency in automating projects. Without EOAT, the robot arm would be virtually useless.

They help the robots do specific tasks such as picking up items, welding parts together, or gripping products.

They can also have various devices attached to them, such as vision systems.

Certain tooling can also be designed for multiple functions such as handling product as well as pallets.

Zeta Group’s Custom EOAT Solution for Depalletizing/Palletizing

At Zeta Group, we specialize in providing custom end of arm tooling for our robotic systems.

In this blog, we are highlighting the end of arm tooling that we use in our fully automated depalletizing and palletizing system, Zeus.

Type of Tooling Used for the Zeus Depalletizing/Palletizing System

For our Zeus system, we utilized a vacuum tool to handle various materials such as freezer sheets, boxes, slip sheets, and bags.

This versatility ensures that our robots can manage different tasks efficiently and accurately.

Unique Features of Zeus’ End of Arm Tooling

Depalletizing and palletizing requires a specific function for each robot. To achieve these functions, we created customized tooling with features such as:

Multi-Zone Control

This allows for precise handling of multiple products at the same time, allowing them to be placed in specific patterns as required.

Slip Sheet Handling

Our tooling is designed to handle slip sheets with care, ensuring that product remains secure and undamaged.

Freezer Sheet Handling

Special vacuum was placed on this EOAT to manage freezer sheets, which can often be challenging to handle due to their material and temperature.

Bag Handling

Our custom tool allows for handling of bagged product, making the depalletizing and palletizing process seamless and efficient.
