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
