Automate 2017 - Applied Robotics, Inc. Adds Vacuum Gripping

Known for High Quality, Reliability and Precision; Applied Robotics, Inc. announces the addition of vacuum gripping to round out their traditional gripper product line.

Glenville, NY: Today, Applied Robotics, Inc., a leading global provider of robotic end-of-arm tooling and connectivity solutions, announced the expansion of vacuum capability to their line of grippers at the Automate Show in Rosemont, IL. (April 3-6th, 2017). Grippers are what allow robots to do work. A gripper is a robot's hand, enabling holding, tightening, handling, moving and releasing an object.


In addition to the existing pneumatic parallel and angular grippers; Applied Robotics now offers a line of vacuum managers, modular vacuum grippers, suction cups and custom framing. Vacuum gripping is the perfect way to handle boxes, bags, automotive body panels, glass and more. Applied Robotics addition of vacuum gripping solutions fills the final gap in their gripping product line and allows them to tout the ability to help their customers "handle anything".

Complementing the expanded vacuum gripping component line are other services such as custom gripper frame design and assembly using Univer GR8 structured aluminum profiles.

"Many times, vacuum grippers need to handle awkward shapes and large work pieces requiring custom framing and we've seen there is a need for design and fabrication services for that framing," said Kevin Drummond, Director, Sales & Marketing for ARI, "Applied Robotics, Inc. is proud to offer these design services and then provide pre-cut kits ready for assembly by the integrator or turn-key tooling, assembled and ready to go."

Featured Product

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. Standardized use of stain
