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.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
