Industrial grippers for robots and manipulators
Gripplers are an indispensable tool for the kinematic unit of the handling machine that enables the transport task to be carried out in the production process. The construction of this element is very diverse, thanks to which the grippers allow the manipulators to fulfill a variety of functions ranging from assembly and testing of elements, through pick and place operations, to sorting and palletizing and depalletizing details.
Robots thanks to m.in. grippers affect the flexibility of the production process, because they can quickly adapt to changes by exchanging the effector's bulb, guaranteeing also high, reproducible quality of production.
Grippers are built from the power unit, the power transmission part, and the gripper grips. Depending on the shape and the material from which the manipulated detail is made, also the robot's destination will be different parameters of the individual elements. The construction of the gripper must allow him to grip the object with proper orientation, then maintain it despite the external forces and transport accelerations and ultimately leave the part in its intended place with proper orientation.
WObit offers grippers with pneumatic, electric and hydraulic drive, in which the transmission is carried out in a variety of ways. The grippers are adapted to be mounted on both the robot's arm and the so-called cluster or the circle of the kinematic keypad of the manipulator.
In terms of the executive system, grips in WObit's offer can be divided into two-necked, triple and multi-grip grippers, as well as rotary grippers. Normally, the grippers have incomplete gripping grips and depending on the user's needs, the user selects the appropriate caps by himself or performs them in his own scope.
All models in their body have prepared space for mounting non-contact position sensors. Thanks to this, it is possible to gripper status indication (open / closed). Grippers are also adapted to be assembled from different sides, an additional ease is the possibility of feeding a medium (air or electrical connection) from several sides of the gripper body.
