Hello,

What do you mean by KUKA tool? A tool for a KUKA robot like a gripper?

Best,
Johannes

Hello,

Please take a look at that recent post of mine which addresses a similar question: https://forum.robotsinarchitecture.org/index.php/topic,925.msg3374.html#msg3374
So yes, unfortunately you will most likely have to build adapter plates yourself - or pay someone to do that for you.
For industrial equipment there are not many online shops, the usual way is to contact the manufacturer who will then connect you with their sales department or a local distributor.
A good way is to look on places like eBay as there is often used industrial equipment at very low prices.

Best,
Johannes
