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.
