OnRobot – Soft Grippers

OnRobot – Soft Grippers:

Robotic introduction in the world of food & beverage, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals has in the past been fraught with danger!

Robotic grippers tended to be made from a hard, steel-based materials, often making them undesirable to handle the more delicate products that are traditionally seen in these industries. Added to that, often products coming out of these industries, tend to have unique or odd shapes…for marketing purposes.

All of these factors have made it very difficult to introduce robotics in the above industries…until now.

Cobots are proud to announce their range of ‘soft’ grippers now available through their partner, OnRobot!

The OnRobot Soft Gripper is able to pick a wide array of irregular shapes and delicate items, making it ideal for pick-and-place applications in food and beverage production, as well as manufacturing or packaging.
