Handling fruit with Piabs new soft gripper - piSOFTGRIP®

Piab is stepping up automation in the food industry, introducing a new vacuum-driven soft gripper

日付 2019/03/29

Cost effective solution for handling sensitive and difficult objects.

Taby, Sweden – Piab is proud to introduce the new soft gripping tool piSOFTGRIP®, developed especially with food industry automation in mind. The vacuum-based soft gripper will grip sensitive and lightweight objects of odd geometries and/or an unusual surface. Bin-picking of small irregularly shaped objects, such as toys, is another potential application.

piSOFTGRIP® has three gripping fingers and a vacuum cavity, all made in one piece, resulting in a simple and robust product. As it is vacuum-driven, the gripping force is easily adjusted and controlled by the applied vacuum level.

Combined with Piab’s end-of-arm vacuum tool piCOBOT®, the piSOFTGRIP® offers a powerful and flexible “plug and play” extension for collaborative robots. As both piCOBOT® and piSOFTGRIP® offer compressed air saving functionality (ES), virtually no energy is needed to perform a grip and release. The handy and application-friendly soft gripper is already UR certified for such use.
