Robotiq has announced the availability of the 2-Finger Adaptive Robotic Gripper, an innovative new gripper, which joins the existing 3-Finger Adaptive Robotic Gripper in providing unique agility and versatility in handling a wide variety of parts with a single gripper.
“Today’s automated assembly and part transfer processes require a high degree of flexibility to deal with a high-mix of parts,” says David J. Marak, Application Engineer at Adept. “The 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper is a very flexible tool that can eliminate costly changeovers and provide significant benefits for many of our customers”, he continues.
“We had to load a resistance nut welding robotic cell with over 30 different parts”, says Steve Spanjers, Director of Engineering at Marwood Metal Fabrication – an automotive OEM metal stamping company. “Having to design several custom grippers was a big concern. We found the 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper to be a flexible solution to grip all our parts, reduce our tooling costs and eliminate time consuming changeovers”, he remarked.
In keeping with the idea of giving manufacturers the flexibility needed to automate high-mix processes, Robotiq designed the new 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper to provide unmatched versatility in handling a broad range of parts.
Fully programmable, the robotic gripper provides:
Taken together, these capabilities make the 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper a perfect fit for high-mix processes such as light assembly, sorting and kitting, packaging, machine tending, bin picking and parts transfer.
