OnRobot VGC10 compact electric vacuum gripper

Monday, 20 January, 2020



Robot end-of-arm tooling manufacturer OnRobot has announced the VGC10 compact electric vacuum gripper.

Based on the design of the OnRobot VG10 electric vacuum gripper, the compact VGC10 is smaller and lighter than its larger counterpart, so is more suitable for constrained environments and smaller robot arms, but still offers the same payload of 15 kg. The VGC10 provides fast out-of-the-box deployment but also offers customisation, with changeable suction cup options and the ability to add or replace arms to fit specific application needs. With this configurability, the VGC10 can grip and move a wide array of small, multidimensional and heavy objects even with a lighter payload robot arm.

The VGC10 features two independently controlled air channels that allow it to act as a dual gripper with pick-up and release in the same action, further increasing efficiency and reducing cycle time. The gripper can also be used with a single air channel for higher gripping performance. With no compressor or air supply needed, eliminating the cost, noise, space and maintenance of producing compressed air, the compact electrical gripper is easy to implement and move. Fully integrated software through OnRobot’s One System Solution platform makes it quick to deploy and redeploy on any major collaborative or light industrial robot arm for greater production flexibility.
