COBOT GRIPPER HAS A SOFT TOUCH

18-03-2019

Schmalz has developed a novel gripper designed specifically for safer human-robot collaboration. The FXCB cobot gripper is an ideal fit for end-of-line packaging and pick-and-place applications.

The gripper features a flexible-foam gripping surface that allows it to safely handle cardboard boxes and other components up to 8kg. It also includes smart communication technology that enables easy integration into automation environments.

The increased contact surface of the FXCB cobot gripper reduces impact forces and allows the new design to meet ISO TS 15066 – the latest standard for collaboration between humans and collaborative industrial robots.

The gripper is modular, and can be equipped with energy-saving ejector modules or intelligent vacuum switches for process monitoring. And as an alternative to onboard vacuum generation the FXCB gripper can be used with an externally supplied vacuum.
