End-of-arm-tooling powered by Stäubli Fluid Connectors

Driven by the potential for data networking of future-oriented manufacturing concepts, under the heading of Industry 4.0, the automation of material handling operations is on the rise worldwide and Stäubli Fluid Connectors is now establishing a new end-of-arm-tooling product range to address these applications.

Stäubli Fluid Connectors has entered into a close partnership with Fipa for its end-of-arm-tooling. Fipa specialises in the development and manufacture of products in the area of vacuum and handling components as well as complete systems for handling processes.

Fipa’s flexible product system, and its corporate philosophy, are a perfect match for Stäubli Fluid Connectors, and its own modular product concept. Armed with this joint expertise, the partners intend to develop solutions for future-oriented manufacturing concepts.

Martin Bergmüller, project manager for end-of-arm-tooling at Stäubli Fluid Connectors, commented: “Fipa is the ideal partner: we have established a strong partnership that is characterised by high standards of quality and solution orientation on both sides. The cooperation combines the skills of both companies into a strong proposal consisting of global availability, broad applications knowledge and excellent technical expertise.”

Norbert Ermer, head of the robotic tool changer business at Stäubli in Bayreuth, said: “Stäubli Fluid Connectors is known for its expertise in automatic tool changers and is now expanding its range to include material handling components and systems. Stäubli Fluid Connectors offers all functions and technologies for this from a single source. And we support our customers comprehensively right up to the fully assembled handling solution.”

Both system developers and system operators will benefit from this partnership: the components supplied are ideally matched to each other. From Stäubli’s point of view, this not only reduces interface problems but also eliminates time-consuming coordination with various points of contact.

Solutions for all applications and robots

The automation of material handling processes requires expertise and precise planning. Stäubli Fluid Connectors relies on their many years of experience in the development of individual solutions and offers comprehensive support: as an established supplier of automatic robotic tool changer systems – and now also of material handling solutions – the company has the product portfolio and the expertise to offer solutions even for particularly complex handling processes.

From the analysis of the framework conditions and application requirements, to the concept and CAD planning of the system, through to the delivery of all components, Stäubli Fluid Connectors offers a complete service package. Also, upon request, the solutions can be delivered fully assembled.
