What is the recommended method for safely servicing your EOAT?
I have a robot with tooling to pickup large 4' x 8' boards and would like to know how to safely service and maintain the EOAT.
I know this would be application specific, but I think that working under the EOAT and relying on the robot brakes is not the safest way.
We are going to perform a task-based risk assessment and I would like to know how other robot users handle this maintenance task.
Some of the options that we considered:
Provide a platform where you can rest the EOAT and be able to work safely underneath the tooling
On 6-axis robots, provide a maintenance position to present the bottom of the EOAT to the service personnel
On 4-axis robots, provide some type of jack stand to support end of arm tool while servicing
Thanks for your assistance.
