SMC's ZP3P series vacuum pads feature a blue-coloured, silicone rubber pad to prevent wrinkles.
The Schmalz SCPM compact ejector can be integrated directly into the vacuum gripping system due to its slim, lightweight design.
Enrico Krog Iversen's OnRobot will grow by strategic acquisitions and technology innovation, addressing the market for collaborative end-of-arm tooling.
The AirPicker and AirGripper ranges comprise precision-engineered rubber product handling devices that inflate gently and evenly to manipulate delicate products or containers.
Designed to offer optimum absorbing performance and efficient handling, the ZP3P vacuum pad from SMC features a blue-coloured silicone rubber pad that prevents wrinkles and is compliant with FDA regulations.
In the packaging industry, changing grippers to suit new products often takes weeks. Now grippers can be made more quickly and cost-effectively with 3D printing.
A strategic collaboration between SMC Pneumatics and AEM Unicore has been a catalyst in the success of manufacturing AEM Unicore's Automatic DUO Core Machine model UCM440A.
SMC has added to its gripper range with the launch of the MHM-X6400, which uses a magnet for the handling of steel plate, without the need for vacuum.
The FlexShapeGripper can grip, collect and release several objects of very different shapes in the one process without the need for manual conversion due to its water-filled silicone cap, which wraps itself around the items being gripped in a flexible, form-fitting manner.
The OGGB low-contact gripper, which works on the Bernoulli principle, is an alternative to suction cups.
Sensor-equipped grippers enhance quality and productivity of automated assembly processes and can enable fully automatic, recipe-driven flexible production.
Researchers have created a versatile gripper using everyday ground coffee and a latex party balloon, bypassing traditional designs based on the human hand and fingers.
PIAB piINLINE is a range of inline vacuum ejectors based on COAX technology. They are suitable for handling components in the electronics industry. A major benefit is that the ejectors work at low feed pressure.
Exair’s modular E-Vac vacuum generators are a series of compressed air-powered vacuums for lifting, pick-and-place, clamping, chucking and surface-mounting applications. The vacuum pumps provide instantaneous response and are available in many sizes that provide a variety of vacuum levels and flow rates. They are maintenance free and have no moving parts to wear out.
The FinGripper has been designed to handle fruit, bulbs or pressure-sensitive food reliably.
