We only show the latest version and generation 3 here. Since most people today use electrical grippers we only show the electrical version, but it is possible to buy without electric module and if you want an older version it is still in stock – of course at a better price. Do not hesitate to get in touch.

Generation 3 – Lock pin
The new GEN III Smartshift Robotics Tool Changer has a upgraded locking pin system that is created to give more precision and stability then its former GEN II version.
Allthough the GEN II is a robust system with a accuracy of 0.05 mm, equal to the general Collaborative robot, the GEN III with its new lock technology tightens even better and will over time of use continue to function without any default. The angled shape on the locking pin slides in to position much like a wedge and will continue to tighten even with usage over time.
The Smartshift units have been tested at 1.6 million shifts and to secure any wearing of the POM, the wedge function is intended to continue its lock strength in a long lasting use scenario.
Freestanding the Lock pin will be in full suspension on the Tool Holder, but when mounted together the Lock pin will have a lower position due to the wedge function, unlike the GEN II cylinder shaped Lock pin.
By adding strength to our tools, we also add strength to the end user and the verity of Robot applications on the market.
