ROBOTIQ EXPANDS THE ADAPTIVE GRIPPERS LINE WITH OUR LARGEST AND STRONGEST ROBOT GRIPPER SO FAR

Robotiq unveils the 2-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper - 200 - a flexible electric gripper with 200 mm of stroke and expanded capabilities to reduce tooling costs, eliminate changeovers, and maximize ROI. Use one off-the-shelf robot gripper to handle all your large parts through 3 gripping modes

May 23rd 2013 - Robotiq unveils the 2-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper - 200 - an electric gripper with 200 mm of stroke and expanded capabilities.


The 2-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper - 200 has been designed using feedback from many automation engineers, who were challenged with the processing of a wide variety of large parts and high changeover rates, in industries such as:

- Automotive parts
- Metal fabrication
- Construction equipment (heavy machinery)
- 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, eliminate changeovers, and maximize ROI."
- Samuel Bouchard, President Robotiq.


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 - enable the handling of different part geometries.
- Rugged design and sealed casing.
- High grip force to handle heavy parts.
- Grip detection and real-time finger position feedback.
- Control of finger speed and force to adapt on-the-fly to heavy or light parts.
