Robot-based drilling, grinding, filing, cutting and deburring without time delays are possible thanks to quick tool change solutions from Suhner Industrial Products Corp.

Tools mount directly to the robot arm to perform operations previously not suitable for automation. Process forces are programmable, tolerances (shapes) will be balanced, programming time and effort (at the robot) for complex parts are reduced; and performance and process assurance can be increased significantly.

Suhner manufactures robotic solutions in Rome, Ga.
