Applied Robotics, Inc., Glenville, N.Y., introduced a new tool changer in the Sigma line—the Sigma NextGen.Applied Robotics NextGen

The Sigma NextGen has driver/cam geometry to provide increased moment and acceleration capabilities to handle today's high dynamic robots. This design ensures robust coupling under the most extreme load conditions, and the tool changer maintains safety with a coupled mechanism during loss of compressed air.

It supports a wide variety of servo tools and bus communications, including the new Sigma SmartComm Communications Module, which features diagnostics via a webpage and the ability to schedule maintenance and run various reports.
