Quebec, Canada May 29, 2013
The 2-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper - 200 has been designed using feedback from many automation engineers from manufacturing industry using robotic grippers, who were challenged with the processing of a wide variety of large parts and high changeover rates, in industries such as:
*Construction equipment (heavy machinery)
"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.
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
