Robotiq Expands the Adaptive Robot Gripper Line with their Largest and Strongest Robotic Gripper So Far

Robotiq unveils the 2-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper - 200 - a flexible electric gripper with 200 mm of stroke and expanded capabilities.

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:

*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

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
