The global leader in gripping and moving solutions, Piab, has won the two Golden Finger Awards in the large company category: Innovation Product Award and Young Enterprise Award. The management of Piab Shanghai was presented with the awards at ceremony in Shanghai.

Shanghai, China – Since 2016, the Golden Finger Awards, as one of the most important supporting activities in the robotics industry in China, has achieved good market response and feedback. In 2018, another five awards were handed out: Innovation Product Award, Top Manager Leader Award, Young Enterprise Award, Intelligent Integrated Award and the Most Influential Industrial Zone Award. The awarding aims to guide the robot products, and related core technology development and applications, to lead the robotics industry of China into a new age.

Innovation Product Award for flexible compact cobot gripper

The Kenos® KCS gripper is an all-rounder and offers a unique level of flexibility when it comes to picking up objects. It allows for a wide range of use thereby eliminating the need for retooling. Thus, the cobot is ready for immediate use at different processes, ensuring optimal usage of its capacity. Paired with time and cost savings achieved through shorter downtimes and the lack of need for retooling, the Kenos® KCS gripper allows for a quick return of investment.

The concept is rounded up by features like its lightweight structure, powerful integrated air-driven COAX®SX cartridge vacuum technology as well as control valve and vacuum sensor access options turning the Kenos® KCS gripper into a plug-and-play system.
