Automate the kitting process

The gripper is adjustable, together with piSAVE® sense – an object sensing valve – the flexibility for kitting process is very big. piCOBOT® can pick, one or two items in the same pick, with different shapes or structures.

Wide application range

Thanks to the multistage COAX® cartridges the high flow capacity of piCOBOT® is outstanding. It can grip anything from very porous to sealed material, from lightweight up to 7kg [15.5Ibs]. A vacuum system based on COAX® technology can provide you with three times more vacuum flow than conventional systems, allowing you to increase speed with high reliability while reducing energy consumption.

Plug and play


Technical and electrical interfaces are seamlessly adapted for UR robots which makes it truly plug and play for the customer. The URCap facilitates installation, set up and programming. There is also onboard intelligence, which makes piCOBOT® adjust automatically for every different application.


piCOBOT® Vacuum Gripper Unit

Certified by Universal Robots, piCOBOT® is a vacuum ejector unit with integrated controls, large visual status indicators and a user-friendly display. It mounts directly on the UR robot arm (ISO-9409-1-50-M6). As an option to mount a suction cup directly on the piCOBOT® thread interface, a high-end adjustable gripper with two suction cups can be seamlessly attached to the piCOBOT® unit. It is equipped with a plug-in software (URCaps) for the handheld programmable device (teach pendant) which will make it very easy to install, set up and get started.

Adjustable Gripper

Designed to be fitted to the end of any type of cobot arm, piCOBOT® is combined with adjustable and flexible grippers that can be fitted with a variety of different suction cups. The 97-142 mm [3.81-5.71”] wide gripper arms can be tilted ±15 degrees, providing excellent reach for positioning cups. Fitted on the grippers are our suction cups, acting as the cobot’s hands.


Choose your cobot vacuum gripper wisely

Plug-and-play cobots offer a perfect transition from manual handling or assembly to more automated operations. But, it is important to choose one with a powerful and safe grip.
