Robotiq Expands the Adaptive Grippers Line with 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper - 200

This new product has been designed using feedback from many automation engineers, who were challenged with the processing of large irregular parts and high changeover rates, in industries such as automotive parts, construction equipment and foundries.

ROBOTIQ - Booth 942


Less than a year after releasing the 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper with an 85 mm stroke, Robotiq unveils at Automate 2013 the 200 mm stroke, 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper with expanded capabilities.

Shortly after the successful release of the 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper which has a 85 mm stroke, numerous manufacturers asked for the same handling versatility for larger and heavier parts.

The answer to these requests is the 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper - 200, unveiled for the first time to the public at Automate 2013, booth 942. This new product has been designed using feedback from many automation engineers, who were challenged with the processing of large irregular parts and high changeover rates, in industries such as automotive parts, construction equipment and foundries. As with all Robotiq Adaptive Grippers, the goal remains the same: use a single, mechanically intelligent robot gripper to handle all your parts to reduce tooling costs and eliminate changeovers.

MAIN FEATURES

This new servo-electric gripper can be installed on any industrial robot to provide unparalleled versatility:

*Programmable 200 mm stroke to pick various part sizes.

*Three distinct gripping modes - parallel, encompassing and internal - enabling handling of different part geometries including flat, square, cylindrical, hollow and irregular.

*Rugged design and sealed casing appropriate for dusty or unfriendly environments.

*High grip force to handle heavy parts.

*Grip detection and real-time finger position feedback, to ensure the right part has been properly picked before the robot moves it.

*Control of finger speed and force to adapt on-the-fly to heavy or light parts.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
