Electrode Cap Changer

FFT Electrode Cap Changer

The electrode cap changer (EKW) enables used resistance spot welding electrode caps to be changed easily and automatically. The system is designed to take up as little space as possible, whilst providing maximum access for the robot. The electrode cap is released linearly by a wedge slider, and the released electrode caps fall into a collecting basket. The cap magazine is mounted so that it lines up with the cap changing tool, so there is no need to realign the welding gun.
