Bilsing Automation (Roseville, MI) single-pipe tooling for robotic applications features quick-release, connect and disconnect couplings, and bayonets. Appropriate for cold and hot stamping as well as other automation applications, the tooling is easy to configure, has a compact design to minimize collisions, numerous electric signals, RFID coding, and sensors for tooling detection and locking control.

Compared to other single-tooling systems, this tooling is up to 25% lighter and the couplings are up to 30% lighter. The single-pipe coupling and bayonet locking mechanisms can be mounted to different beam types, like an 80-mm-by-80-mm carbon fiber beam, and comes in locking styles including mechanical, air, or electric as well as left or right versions.

The tooling features an 8-pin electric plug, up to four air ports, and 10-mm-diameter air piping. Sensor styles are available to ensure correct positioning and production safety. The quick-release devices are made of aluminum and steel and can adjust to 32 settings, accommodating a variety of profile shapes and sizes.

Combined with a carbon fiber (CF) beam, the tooling can reduce cycle times compared to aluminum and steel systems. It’s less than half the weight of traditional materials, but stiffer and stronger and settles more rapidly. This enables robot motion paths to occur more quickly with less vibration and idle time as tools settle.

Bilsing Automation produces a series of round, square, and conical carbon fiber tooling as well as custom profiles. Potential CF applications include crossbar beams, loading and unloading beams, destacking beams, panel loading t-booms, and tooling supports for body shop, pressroom, injection molding, and other operations.
