The ability to grasp is an essential capability for autonomous action. Like humans, it enables robots to interact with their environment and perform tasks such as grasping and manipulating objects, assembling parts, and moving objects from one place to another. Gripping technology has advanced greatly in recent years. Many robots today are equipped with sophisticated gripping systems that can adapt to different shapes and sizes of objects.
The gripper was designed for mounting on an Universal Robots e-series robot flange and using the robobrain.eye vision system. The length was especially chosen so that the gripper can pick from boxes without risk of collision. The LED Gripper can be equipped with different suction cups and thus offers a flexible solution for various application scenarios. The integrated analog vacuum sensor enables safe process organization.
