Ideal for a wide range of applications including light assembly, sorting and kitting, packaging, machine tending, bin picking and part transfer, the new Adaptive Gripper (Robotiq) has two articulated fingers that can adapt automatically to parts of varying size and shape.

The Adaptive Gripper is extremely flexible and easily handles a high-mix of part types, eliminating the need for a tool changer and multiple tools. Compared to custom tooling, the Adaptive Gripper reduces setup costs and cycle time due to its short stroke and elimination of tool change delays.

Fully programmable, the robotic gripper provides three gripping modes (parallel, encompassing and inside) to handle different part geometries including flat, square, cylindrical and irregular. The Adaptive Gripper features precise force and speed controls to enable handling parts with different rigidities from brittle to stiff. Accurate finger control enables fast cycle times through partial open/closing.
