Gripper Picks Irregular Shapes, Delicate Items in ‘Clean’ Applications

The new OnRobot food-grade-certified Soft Gripper serves industries like food and beverage, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals as well as manufacturing and packaging. No external air supply required, so costs and complexity are reduced.

Walking on eggshells? OnRobot's Soft Gripper provides Ideal handling for delicate objects, as clearly demonstrated in this food industry application.
The Soft Gripper uses three interchangeable silicon-molded cups in star and four-finger configurations to pick up almost any small object under 2.2kg (4.8lbs) with a delicate, precise touch.

The flexible Soft Gripper from OnRobot (Odense, Denmark) simplifies automation for food and beverage and other “clean” applications such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, handling items from eggs and fruit, to bottles and irregular-shaped containers. It uses three interchangeable silicon-molded cups in star and four-finger configurations to pick up almost any small object under 2.2kg (4.8lbs) with a delicate, precise touch. The electric Soft Gripper is food-grade certified (complies with FDA 21 CFR for non-fatty items and EC 1935/2004) and unlike traditional vacuum grippers, it requires no external air supply, so it can reduce both cost and complexity.

“Our new Soft Gripper is challenging existing solutions for picking hard-to-grasp, delicate and odd-sized items,” says OnRobot CEO Enrico Krog Iversen. “Unlike proprietary solutions, the Soft Gripper offers seamless integration with most collaborative robots and light industrial robots through our One System Solution.”

OnRobot’s award-winning One System Solution is a platform that provides a unified mechanical and electrical interface between leading robot arms and any OnRobot end-of-arm tooling (EoAT). The One System Solution has been newly expanded to include integration with robots from ABB Robotics and Hanwha Precision Machinery. Now, users of those robots can take advantage of the unified mechanical and electrical interface of any OnRobot product, for easier integration and faster ROI.

While the Soft Gripper is appropriate for food and beverage applications, it also provides flexible, delicate gripping for manufacturing and packaging.

Soft Gripper Features:

  • Up to 2.2kg (4.8lbs) payload based on shape, softness and friction of items to be handled
  • Grip dimensions ranging from 10mm-118mm depending on cup used
  • FDA certification
  • Flexible, interchangeable silicon cups
  • Ideal handling for delicate objects and irregular shapes
  • No need for supplied air
  • Fast, flexible deployment with seamless integration on all major robot brands
