When discussing industrial robots and deciding what is right for your application, it is important to consider what options are available to best help your industrial robot get the job done. This is where end-of-arm-tooling, or EOAT, comes in. EOAT is simply the hand of your industrial robot. While being a simple concept, the EOAT is one of the most important parts of the robot. It is what picks, places and moves objects. It is the robot’s go to, it takes care of the action. There are many different end-of-arm-tooling options.
