NEW! Schmalz Cobot Gripper (MRK)

  • Ideal for stationary handling tasks with collaborative robots
  • For all applications in the field of intralogistics (e. g. end-of-line packaging, pick & place applications)

Area Gripping Systems (FXP)

  • Universal gripper with integrated, pneumatic vacuum generation, for handling workpieces regardless of size, geometry, material and surface
  • Handling of workpieces made from various materials, such as wood (coated or unplaned), packaging (boxes, bags or cans), metal sheets, glass, plastics, CFRP, etc.
  • Handling of porous workpieces, workpieces with gaps or undefined pick-up position

 

When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?

Our booth staff is most interested in seeing the latest and greatest in The Innovation Stage.

 

The factory floor is undertaking rapid advancements, be it automation, robotics, machine vision or data.  The process of packaging is a huge part for many manufacturers, give us an idea on how your company and product is being utilized now in the smart factory.

Many of our longstanding generator, switch and monitoring products have been updated in recent years to include IO Link and NFC capabilities. We feel strongly that this is essential to today’s manufacturing centers and we’re eagerly involved in the advancements that will come.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
