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.

Zaber's Fastest, Longest Travel Stage

Zaber's Fastest, Longest Travel Stage

Zaber's new and improved stage (X-BLQ-E) is a closed-loop, belt-driven motorized linear stage with built-in motor encoder and controller. With travel lengths up to 3 m, 10 µm repeatability, and a maximum speed of 2.0 m/s, X-BLQ-E stages are perfect for rapid positioning over large distances. A built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery, and an optional indexed knob provides manual control for operation without a computer. Like all Zaber products, the X-BLQ-E Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
