Robotiq Joins Hands with Motoman Robotics to Offer Adaptive Gripper Tooling

Robotiq and Motoman Robotics Division of Yaskawa America have entered into a strategic partnership. The Adaptive Gripper from Robotiq has been included as a complimentary partner product to the product offering of Motoman Robotics.

As part of the alliance, the companies will be offering the dextrous robotic gripper tooling on robots in order to enhance the flexibility of the application and also to minimise the costs involved in tooling.

The Adaptive Gripper consists of three articulated fingers and conforms to the industrial grade. The fingers of the gripper are flexible and can adapt to parts of any size and shape. The end of the robot arm is most suitable in applications where thousands of parts are required to be handled by a single robot. Some of the best suited applications for the robot are machine loading/unloading, positioning of parts, welding, assembly, material handling and inspection. Roger Christian, the vice president of Motoman Robotics, explained that the primary reason why they chose to market the gripper was the uniqueness that sets it apart from the conventional ones in the market. He added that when it is combined with robots from Motoman, they will be able to provide robotic solutions for material handling and kitting applications to their customers. This combined solution leads to cost saving and simplicity of operations. The President of Robotiq stated that the gripper could be reprogrammed for different applications instead of retooling while handling different parts.
