Sheet-Jamming Technology Revolutionizes Soft Robotics Grippers
To improve the performance of suction grippers, a new concept called sheet-jamming phenomena has been introduced. This technology has been used to create a suction gripper that is lightweight and can lift almost twice the weight of regular suction cups.
End-of-Arm-Tooling powered by Stäubli Fluid Connectors
Stäubli Fluid Connectors presents a new End-of-Arm-Tooling range: The mechatronics specialist offers a broad technology portfolio from a single source coupled with advice for individual solutions in robotic material handling.
Automatic box palletizing in the food industry
BX suction cups made of double-strength Duraflex® in combination with Piab's COAX® vacuum generation technology have enabled Tradicional Panadera to palletize different carton formats with a single gripper.
Everything Under Control
In modern systems, "pick-and-place" is performed by automated grippers. They must be able to operate both powerfully and delicately and do so precisely and reliably millions of times over. Increasingly, the necessary power comes from electric motors.
Soft Grippers Can Handle Small and Delicate Parts With Greater Ease
This opens up new possibilities in robotic automation and even some cutting edge robotics applications. From injection molding to strawberries and even robotic surgeries, soft gripper technology is making it easier than ever before for robots to pick up anything.
Stanford engineers develop a robotic hand with a gecko-inspired grip
Aiming to create a robotic gripper that can grasp with delicate strength, researchers combine adhesives based on gecko toes with a customized robotic hand.
4 Amazing Advancements in Robotic Grippers to Keep an Eye On
As manufacturing sectors of all kinds struggle with a growing labor gap, these collaborative grip designs can help streamline facility workflows, reducing the labor necessary to complete tasks while keeping the facility flexible and adaptable.
Like any mechanism, robots can shed particles from belts, gasses from hoses and dust particles from the movement of the end effectors. It is this particle disbursement that can be the critical issue for clean room robotics.
Variance and Volume Advantageously Combined One of a Kind in Series
Up until now, users in the metal and plastics processing industries often faced a difficult choice: with CNC lathes and milling machines, one opted either for the largest possible variance or for large volumes, i.e., high quantities.
Labor Shortages Impact on the Automation in the eCommerce Boom
Automation and robotics create such a dynamic industrial ecosystem that it will continue to adapt to increased demand for consumer products. We'll see more artificial intelligence being deployed and utilized.
Zimmer Group Supports Vischer & Bolli Robot Cell With Kuka Robots and a Bespoke Gripper
