Custom End of Arm Tooling
Millibar engineers have the proven field experience to solve your most challenging material handling requirements. Our custom robotic end of arm tooling solutions have run the gamut from handling bagged liquids, blister packaged hypodermic needles, removing flash from molded parts, to gripping complex shapes with irregular surfaces. This extensive knowledge base allows us to ask the right questions and avoid common pitfalls to create a solution that will work efficiently and effectively in your real-world application.
With our in-house Carbon Fiber 3D printing, lasers and multi-axis production equipment, we can mock-up a testable solution in a day, if not hours, depending on complexity. Our solutions are designed to minimize components to save assembly cost and provide trouble-free operation. We are so confident in our solutions, we provide a 100% guarantee that our solutions will work or your money back!

- Improving safety
Millibar Manual Tool Changer Ecosystem
With the growing use of collaborative robots in production lines, Millibar has address the need for non-expert robot users to quickly switch between end of arm tooling components with the Millibar manual tool changer ecosystem. Our utility series manual tool changers can support applications requiring electric and air/vacuum. Our low profile series manual tool changers are for space limited applications that do not require utilities.
Millibar’s Manual Tool changer is a two-part solution:
- Robot side - attaches to your robot’s wrist without the need of adapter plates.
- Tool side - allows your Millibar pre-engineered or custom end of arm tooling solutions to quickly and easily slide-in and lock into place.
Our quick change solution is ideal for high-mix, low-volume applications. Even if your facility has a variety of robot brands, the Millibar Manual Tool Changer ecosystem allows tools to be shared between robots.
