Contents: Reconfigurable robot tools, and their integration can save large sums of the total cost of a robot cell. In this video reconfigurable, automated robot tool / hand changer designs and some applications are discussed and demonstrated in detail. The focus is on small-batch sensory-feedback controlled assembly, part loading, and other flexible robot cells. Robot tools, or in more general terms, end-of-arm tools, hands, or robot end-effectors are general purpose, programmable or task-oriented devices connected between the robot wrist and the object, or load to be manipulated and/or processed by the robot. Reconfigurable robot tooling enables the robot to rapidly change its end effectors, or fingers of its end effectors, typically under programmable software control. This task is complicated by the fact that modern end-of-arm tools can include several power supply options, such as mechanical, electric, pneumatic, hydraulic and other, contact and/or non-contact sensors, offering touch / slip / force/ torque sensing, 2D or 3D vision, providing fast and reliable sensory feedback-control for the arm control computer to calculate safe and efficient trajectories.
