Ideal for high-mix pick and place applications in many diverse industries

Québec City, Canada - Robotiq releases the 2-Finger 140 Adaptive Robot Gripper, a large stroke electric gripper with advanced control features. This flexible Gripper allows a robot to pick a wide range of objects with a single, programmable tool. It is ideal for high-mix pick and place applications in many diverse industries such as electronics, consumer goods and logistics.


Flexible handling solution

The new 2-Finger Gripper comes with a 140 mm programmable stroke and a 2 kg payload. Its built-in advanced controls allow it to detect that a part has been picked, as well as pick soft, fragile or deformable parts without crushing them while maintaining a safe grip when the robot is moving.
