A milestone in safety, SHUNCK’s EGL-C long-stroke grippers feature an algorithm that protects employees as they work beside the robots–robots that happen to have 300% more gripping force than most of their peers.
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.
Shrinking the size of its award-winning Gecko Gripper, OnRobot introduces Gecko Single Pad (SP) in three sizes for applications requiring a small footprint gripper.
OnRobot’s 3FG15 three-finger gripper with a 150mm stroke is a powerful alternative to bulkier and less-flexible three-finger grippers currently on the market – a unique solution. The new gripper excels at heavy-payload machine-tending applications that require high precision and flexible handling.
With weight offset by double-acting motion, AOV-10 produces desired finish regardless of orientation – even if it’s upside down. And because it’s automated, employees are protected from the dangers associated with manual operations.
The company adds to its award-winning Co-act (collaborative actuator) gripper line with the EGH, which provides a stroke length of 3.15 in (80 mm) and 100 newtons of clamping force. The EGH 80 is designed for Universal Robots products, but Schunk will expand to include other robot manufacturers.
Schunk’s Kontec KSX-C power-assisted vise with continuously variable force adjustment ensures a secure hold event with minimal clamping surfaces. Fully encased spindle, drawbar extensions, and large jaw range enable the vise to adapt quickly and easily to any new requirement.
Annual installations of collaborative robots (cobots) grew 23% from 2017 to 2018, according to the World Robotics Report, published by International Federation of Robotics.
Based on the design of OnRobot’s award-winning VG10 electric vacuum gripper, the smaller and lighter VGC10 offers the same 35-pound payload for smaller robot arms. Powerful and flexible enough for nearly any application.
Unified mechanical and electric interface for any OnRobot
end-of-arm tooling (EoAT) dramatically simplifies automation.
The certified URCap software provides a unified interface for OnRobot’s new versions of RG2, RG6, and VG10 grippers with Universal Robots (UR).
The lightweight EGB four-stage mechatronic gripper from SCHUNK swiftly and accurately picks and places even deformation-sensitive parts.
Amid Challenges, Majority of Metalformers Predict Little Change in Economic Activity
U.S and Canadian incoming orders expected to remain steady, according to the latest barometer reading from the Precision Metalforming Association.
U.S. Manufacturing Grows in September –– PMI Dips 0.6% to 55.4
The Institute for Supply Management reports that among the six biggest industries, food, beverage & tobacco remains the best-performing sector, with fabricated metal and chemical products growing strongly.
