Smartshift Robotics Products

SMARTSHIFT Robotics offers two primary products based on a similar mechanical design, a robot tool change system and a quick-change base for moving a robot to multiple locations. The SMARTSHIFT Robot Tool Change system uses their unique patented triangular “dove tail ” locking system to engage and disengage multiple tools from the end of a robot. The design of the system uses a tool holder which has a locking pin that’s actuated as the robot moves the tool so the result is a tool change while the robot is in motion. The SMARTSHIFT Robot base is a large version of the unique patented triangular “dove tail” locking system used as a means of accurately and quickly mounting and moving a robot. Now with SMARTSHIFT Robotics products, companies can realize greater robot flexibility and utility of time because the robot can simply and quickly change a tool and do another task.

About SmartShift


SMARTSHIFT Robotics was established in 2018 by Kjell Buind in a remote area a short drive outside the main capital of Norway, Oslo. Buind, with over 40 years of experience in making automation solutions for the manufacturing industry envisioned a different approach to the need of making industrial robots both fast, accurate and flexible. He developed an innovative mechanical system as a robot tool change device. The design evolved rapidly and coupled with SMARTSHIFT Robotics manufacturing craftsmanship, precision and quality, their products have taken their rightful place in the robotics industry redefining how tool changers should work. SMARTSHIFT Robotics tool changers can be found across the globe on robots of every brand and size.
