Today, Applied Robotics, Inc., a leading global provider of robotic end-of-arm tooling and connectivity solutions, announced the expansion of vacuum capability to their line of grippers at the Automate Show in Rosemont, IL. (April 3-6th, 2017). Grippers are what allow robots to do work. A gripper is a robot’s hand, enabling holding, tightening, handling, moving and releasing an object.
In addition to the existing pneumatic parallel and angular grippers; Applied Robotics now offers a line of vacuum managers, modular vacuum grippers, suction cups and custom framing. Vacuum gripping is the perfect way to handle boxes, bags, automotive body panels, glass and more. Applied Robotics addition of vacuum gripping solutions fills the final gap in their gripping product line and allows them to tout the ability to help their customers “handle anything”.
Complementing the expanded vacuum gripping component line are other services such as custom gripper frame design and assembly using Univer GR8 structured aluminum profiles.
“Many times, vacuum grippers need to handle awkward shapes and large work pieces requiring custom framing and we’ve seen there is a need for design and fabrication services for that framing,” said Kevin Drummond, Director, Sales & Marketing for ARI, “Applied Robotics, Inc. is proud to offer these design services and then provide pre-cut kits ready for assembly by the integrator or turn-key tooling, assembled and ready to go.”
