Tool Changers

Tool changers are devices that fix to the wrist of a collaborative robot (cobot), enabling it to quickly and easily switch from one tool to another. This allows you to have several tools operating in the same area, to complete a particular set of tasks. As a result, tool changers reduce set up times and provide you with greater versatility.
