Automate more parts handling than ever
Contrary to what many people think, robots are not limited to specific uses and are adaptable to a wide range of needs. Robot grippers are instrumental to helping automation systems support different manufacturing requirements. With robotic grippers and adaptable programming, robots can be repurposed or used for multiple applications.
From heavy, awkward payloads to fragile or irregular objects and those requiring dexterous manipulation, robot gripper systems can handle parts of many shapes and sizes, resulting in improved productivity, reduced costs and greater worker safety.
Flexible finger styles, as well as size, force and speed levels, enable gripping systems to take on many different tasks. Adaptive grippers generally come in two types:
2-Finger Parallel Grippers — Useful for gripping a wide range of part shapes.
3-Finger Concentric Grippers — An ideal choice for gripping cylindrical parts.
