Meet the new gripper set that makes it easy to switch between applications, brought to you directly from the industrial automation sector to the classroom: the SoftGripper Educational Kit. The multifunctional and robust design makes this kit ideal for the educational sector. By switching between the two grippers and the suction cup option, students can independently determine the advantages and grip strength of each gripper in a wide variety of applications.

This kit comes with one ISO 9409-A31.5-R adapter, one ISO 9409-A50-R, one suction cup and one spacer each, and can be put directly into operation with the help of a compressor. Remember that the grippers can be spread by vacuum to grip larger objects!

Grippers that resemble human fingers can grip much more accurately and gently than a simple steel claw. Accordingly, just about any everyday item can be handled by these gripper Options

  • Packaged food
  • mechanical parts
  • Consumables

On safety concerns when using robotics in educational subjects: from electricity to pneumatics, there are many things to consider. Fortunately, educational robots are small enough to do no harm. Educational SoftGrippers are gentle enough not to hurt humans and are considered safe to use with children.

SoftGripping fingers are universal and can be used with any object shape. On the one hand, SoftGrippers are used for all pick & place tasks. The outstanding hygienic design makes cleaning particularly easy. For applications with special hygiene requirements, such as handling raw or processed meat or fish, our SoftGripper bases are available with a special FDA-approved coating. Handles can be machine cleaned or cleaned with a cleaning solution.

SoftGripper element

SoftGrippers are modular in design. They consist of several elements such as: Flange adapters, bases, fingers and optional seals and suction cups.

Robot flange and gripper base

A flange adapter is required to mount the gripper to the robot. Adapters fit all robots on the market. The shape of the object to be gripped determines the base area of the gripper. A round object needs a central base, a cube or long object needs a parallel base. We offer different types of clamp bases with different numbers of fingers at different angles. This can be used to grip most conceivable objects. We will be happy to design and build a completely self-sufficient base for your specific application in a very short time. The angle of the fingers and the size of the base can be specially adapted to your needs. Optionally, our clamping bases are designed according to hygienic requirements (special screws and seals) and can be supplied with an FDA-approved coating.

 

Finger

The heart of our grippers are our SoftGripping fingers. They adapt to the shape of various objects and grip securely without damaging the surface of the object. The main advantages are light weight, high speed and, thanks to its adaptability, the ability to grip objects with different geometries with one gripper. Our pneumatic fingers are made of FDA approved silicone rubber for food handling. We also guarantee a service life of more than 10 million cycles at 1 bar operating pressure.

Accessories

Optional suction cups are available to support the fingers. This is especially useful when picking up objects that are very close together or when additional stabilization is required. The suction cup is mounted in the center of the fixture. Here we provide threads for mounting accessories. To improve accuracy and prevent objects from slipping, our spacers can be used instead of vacuum cups. Alternatively, you can use Aggregate Points for your very specific tool.
