Robotiq Releases a Protective Cover

Safety has always been and will always be a true value in our company. For the last couple of years we have been working with collaborative robots and a lot of our products have been used in collaborative applications (aka alongside humans). We have been working on making our products as simple to use as possible, but always with an attention to safety. Along these lines, we have designed a protective cover to eliminate any type of pinching that might be possible from the joints of the 2-Finger 85 Adaptive Gripper. Here's why we did this.
