The gripper can pack manufactured components with three fingers, place them in boxes and place a layer of protective cardboard over them.
The MAXXgrip is robot vendor independent and can be deployed on any industrial robot or cobot. The articulating fingers stabilize items during pick and place operations.
The committee will initially develop standards for the performance of grasping-type end effectors, mobile manipulators and robotic assembly systems.
Amazon said preliminary tests show a prototype pinch-grasping robot achieved a 10-fold reduction in damage on items such as books and boxes.
The new tool can design a 3D-printable passive gripper and calculate the best path to pick up an object.
Florian Pestoni says “necrobotics” is where ethics and technology must meet. Just because it can be done, it doesn’t mean we should.
A Rice University research lab manipulates dead spiders’ legs with a puff of air to turn the spider into a gripper.
Researchers at the MIT developed a system that can help robots retrieve target items from a pile of items with some RFID tags.
Soft Robotics plans to make its mGripAI solution available for order fulfillment, sortation, decanting and kitting.
CSAIL’s Perceptual Science Group created touch sensors for their gripper, allowing it to feel with the same sensitivity as human skin.
Odense Robotics’ 300 members, made up of robot, automation and drone companies, nominated and voted for the winners.
Box manufacturer Alliora had wanted to add automation to its production lines for a while. Unfortunately, its first experience was difficult.
