Soft Robotics: Robotic grippers for delicate products

See it at PACK EXPO International, Booth #E-9415! With new developments by Soft Robotics, a single end-of-arm tool (EOAT) on a robotic packaging system can now handle an unprecedented range of objects that require special gentle handling--such as raw dough, freshly baked items such as bread rolls or bagels, enrobed chocolate, and items with any sort of topping or frosting--without the need for tool changes or software modifications between cycles.

Soft Robotics has demonstrated the ability to grasp difficult-to-handle products with variable characteristics, with a single device utilizing special “gripper” technology. This disruptive capability addresses unmet needs in existing markets and unlocks new markets for cost-effective automated solutions.
