The new SR Series of round quick-change systems for robot end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) is said to be quick and easy to install and helps molders accommodate frequent mold changes. Supplied by FIPA Inc., Cary, N.C., their visual locking indication (red for locked, green for open) reportedly ensures safe operation, along with the snap-on Safe-Lock mechanism, robust construction, and pneumatic connections that are always correctly aligned. Made of aluminum alloy, the SR Series comes in three sizes with maximum lifting capacities from 45 to 225 lb.
