A lightweight micro gripper, the MGR5 was designed for small, fragile part assembly. The MGR brings operation force 10 gram or less capability into range. Light moving mass reduces impact force during small product placement.

MGR5 Specs:

• Compact and lightweight
• Light force capability 10g or less
• Soft-Land capability for pick and place of delicate and fragile parts
• Each jaw can be independently controlled in force, position and velocity
• 5 micron linear encoder standard, 1 micron optional

SMAC electric grippers incorporate programmable speeds, positions and forces with data feedback. The ability to independently control each jaw allows precise force control, measurement and positioning. This makes them ideal for a wide range of positioning, measuring, and inspection applications, particularly where 100% verification is required.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
