Schunk SHS tool changer

£595.60

If you find yourself needing to change the end of arm tooling on your Eva frequently, and if you’re already using Schunk grippers, then the Schunk SHS tool changer is the right system for you. It allows the user to manually change the gripper in use quickly, based on the use case requirements. This tool is a size 40 if used with an Eva.

The robot-side unit (SHK) comes with an ISO mounting pattern, removing the requirement for any additional adapter plates. The tool-side unit (SHA) stays with the gripper, therefore you will need one per gripper used. The tool changer also allows you to pass through electrics, meaning you won’t need to disconnect the system entirely between tool changes.

Adding value to your production line does not need to be costly. Affordable automation solutions can handle repetitive tasks and free up your staff

As small and medium sized manufacturers face increasing pressure to remain competitive by improving margins and efficiency – while in parallel facing a skills shortage – they are increasingly turning to robotics as part of the solution.

Industrial automation has typically been costly and complex, best suited to high volume industries such as FMCG or automotive manufacturing. However, a new category of affordable industrial robotics is making automation more accessible for SMEs than ever before.

By implementing a low-cost robotic automation solution, SMEs can easily:

  • address key bottlenecks in production lines.
  • maintain flexibility around capacity and throughput.
  • increase volumes to meet temporary spikes in customer demand.
  • free up staff and upskill them for more value-added work.

With Eva, the robot arm starting from £4,990, manufacturers are automating their most repetitive processes, such as loading and unloading, material handling, machine tending and other repetitive pick and place processes. With its small footprint, the robot can easily be moved between workstations, making Eva an ideal solution for high-mix, low volume manufacturers with a wide variety of processes.

Addressing a skills shortage with automation

For SMEs, one of the biggest barriers to sustained growth is a shortage of staff available to take on the more repetitive, menial or physically intensive tasks. More widely, workers are seeking opportunities to upskill, widen the breadth and depth of their knowledge and be challenged in their day-to-day roles.

In addition, fluctuations in customer demand often mean taking on untrained, temporary staff and spending time and money training those workers without the benefit of being able to offer long-term employment.

For companies looking to address such staffing challenges, automation with Eva can provide many opportunities:

  • automate basic repetitive pick and place tasks, freeing up staff to focus on value-add operations.
  • directly address concerns around upskilling and training.
  • expand into second and third shifts when needed with little additional cost.
