Robotools S.r.l. has been in operation for almost twenty years and was the first company in Italy to design and build tool charger, standard and special, used in different sectors of industry using, especially for the clamping unit, particularly innovative solutions.
We are a dynamic company which, thanks to the professionalism of our qualified employees, has achieved a high standard of quality.
Robotools S.r.l. is able to anticipate the times by offering innovative solutions with a particular flexibility towards the needs of the customer, meeting precise and specific requirements in an ever-changing market.
The creative capacity and experience gained over the years are an asset at the service of customers.
In fig. 1 we can see the first tool charger realized in 1997 and sold under the brand name Com.Imp.Ex..
The locking system was a pin controlled opening/closing system and with a conical body to withstand high moments.
Of the six sold in the same year and mounted on robots ABB, in 2010 five were still in operation and the sixth was used for spare parts, as the line on which they were mounted was subsequently downsized.
In fig. 2 tool charger D 125-160 built in 1999, there were ten hydraulic couplings on the flange, a 15-pin electrical connector for signals and the possibility of using a 180 A power connector. The clamping unit (not present in the picture) will later be modified as in the fig. 3 using two or more locking balls and a conical body,to its final version fig. 4 which will be used and patented in 2001.
In the clamping unit drawing, element conceptually valid for all caliper changes but adapted to different usage loads, the final version of the model D125-160 with 250 kg load capacity, the patented multi-ball locking system (in the market since 2001), safety spring release caused by power loss (Tests carried out by one of our customers have shown that 350 kg can be held without the slightest separation of the flanges).
In the final design we see the special double cone locking pin that prevents total release (Tests carried out by a certification laboratory have demonstrated the validity of the solution using a traction of 6,500 kg without any tool release/loss.).
