Robotic tool changer systems MPS for all payloads

Stäubli has decades of experience in Connectors and Robotics. The combined expertise of both Stäubli divisions goes into making our robotic tool changers technologically advanced and reliable, with performance that greatly enhances the productivity of automated production lines.  Recently Staubli introduced two compact fully automatic tool change systems, the MPS 130 and the MPS 260, for the medium payload segment, Stäubli Connectors rounds off the lower end of its existing series. The two new series are not only intended for applications in the automotive industry, but the advantages of the automatic gripper and tool changer should open up other markets. With the automatic tool changer, the application of robots can be significantly expanded and their efficiency and productivity increased.

Stäubli Connectors has paid particular attention to a weight-optimized design of the new tool changer so that users don’t have to invest in robots of the next highest payload category.  Thus the weight of the MPS 130 is only 1.8 kg on the robot side and just 1.1 kg on the tool side. With the larger MPS 260, these values are 3.8 and 2.2 kg. Although the changer may be light, it is not short on strength and resilience. The MPS 260 impresses with a maximum load of 350 kg and a bending moment of 2,000 Nm. The smaller MPS 130 has a maximum load of 100 kg and a bending moment of 900 Nm.

 

With the MPS 130 and the MPS 260, Stäubli Connectors now offers compact change systems for the medium payload range.
 

As with the larger models, the two new additions meet the strictest safety requirements according to safety category 3, performance level d. The tool changers can be equipped with customized  modules and components for media, data and electrical power transmission. To guarantee maximum reliability, Stäubli is the only manufacturer worldwide to develop and produce the complete changer single-handedly. The locking mechanism, the media module and the entire connection technology comes from a single source. The advantage is that all components are produced under an integrated quality management system in the highest production quality.
