Robotiq recently declared that its 2-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper is now available.
2-Finger Robot Gripper
This newly launched gripper will complement the existing 3-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper and will continue to present exceptional agility and versatility in managing an extensive range of parts using a single gripper.
Present manufacturers focus on cost-efficiency, superior agility and more automation in processes involving high-mix and labor intensive capabilities. The present day technologies like tool changers present expensive and limited solutions for handling a variety of parts.
For promoting flexibility in automating high-mix processes, a new 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper was designed by Robotiq. This latest gripper ensures superior versatility in handling a variety of parts.
The fully programmable, robotic gripper from Robotiq features:
- Accurate finger control that accelerates the cycle times through partial open or closing.
- Three unique gripping modes, such as parallel, encompassing and inside grip, ensure efficient handling of different kinds of geometrical parts such as cylindrical, flat, square, and irregular.
- Precise speed and force control capability will allow handling of different rigidity parts such as stiff, brittle, and deformable.
- Handling a variety of sizes in a compact form factor can be achieved using high payload to weight ratio equipped with long stroke.
Robotiq’s new 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper integrates these significant features to serve as an ideal solution for high-mix processes including machine tending, light assembly, sorting and kitting, packaging, parts transfer and bin picking.
