- The reason why we are interested in this topic is because we make tools that are installed both on traditional and collaborative robots. We have a family of products called the Adaptive Grippers that are electric grippers with self-adaptive fingers.

By designing, selling and supporting Grippers on different types of robots, we see that the
constraints for the tooling on these two types of robots (collaborative and traditional) are the same for some aspects and different for others.

Robot Grippers for collaborative robots

  1. 1. 2011-04-02 ROBOT GRIPPERS FOR COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS
  2. 2. “A gripper is to a robot, what tires are to a car. They’re not the engine, they’re not the drivetrain, but it’s through the tires that the car interacts with the road.”
  3. 3. FLEXIBILITY VS RAW PERFORMANCE ● Goals and functions ○ Same business objective: Increase productivity, quality and consistency ○ Similar shape and function: They are all robot arms! COLLABORATIVE VS TRADITIONAL ROBOTS Get a complete comparative chart here
  4. 4. TO GET THE JOB DONE ● Most common tasks done by collaborative robots: ○ Pick and place ○ Machine tending ○ Packaging WHY BUY A COLLABORATIVE ROBOT?
  5. 5. ● Safety standards ○ Still at TS stage (Technical Specification) ● Gripper safety ○ Gripper on the robot ○ Gripper itself ○ Gripper with an object REMOVE THE FENCES USE ALONGSIDE PEOPLE
  6. 6. FOR COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS AND GRIPPERS ● 4 main interface contacts between the robot and gripper ○ Mechanical interface ○ Power source ○ Communication signal ○ Software EASE OF INSTALLATION
  7. 7. COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS ● Intuitive interfaces allow for: ○ Elimination of necessity to comprehend robot language(s) ○ High-level communication with the gripper through the interface EASE OF PROGRAMMING
  8. 8. ROBOT GRIPPER ● Perks of an Adaptive Gripper ○ Easy finger customization ○ Control over finger speed, force and position FLEXIBLE TASKING
  9. 9. ■ Expectations about collaborative robots. ■ What needs to be considered when talking about robotic gripper safety. ■ Expectations for a robot gripper when used with a collaborative robot. All of us are familiar with grippers for traditional industrial robots. What’s changing now with the advent of collaborative robots? Can we use the same robotic end effectors we’ve always used on collaborative robots? This FREE eBook explores these main themes: ROBOT GRIPPERS FOR COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS - EBOOK
