Suitable for use in a range of industries, Robotiq's new vacuum grippers can handle both uneven and even workpieces made of different materials, such as cardboard, glass, sheet metal (dry) and plastic. Offering plug-and-play compatibility with all the top cobot brands, AirPick and EPick enable manufacturers to say goodbye to expensive and complicated custom-designed solutions.
You can find more information (including product specifications) about these exciting new additions to Robotiq's gripper family right here.

The Robotiq Sanding Kit
Why spend hours programming your robot for finishing applications when the Sanding Kit can reduce set-up and programming time to mere minutes? Leveraging the capabilities of Robotiq's FT 300 Force Torque Sensor, the Sanding Kit features a built-in path generator for consistent force during each cycle --a key feature in finishing tasks that require material removal.
Come see the Sanding Kit demo at the Robotiq booth!
