When working with robotic arms, several considerations must be accounted for, including the weight of End of Arm Tooling + payload. This calculation is affected by the tooling AND payload’s center of gravity.
Robotic End of Arm Tooling: Maximum Payload
The maximum allowed payload of the robot arm depends on the center of gravity offset. The center of gravity offset is defined as the distance between the center of the tool output flange and the center of gravity. Each robotic arm will have a different graph depicting its specific relationship with the center of gravity offset, found in the specification manual.
