OnRobot brings food-grade-certified handling to challenging pick-and-place applications.
OnRobot unveiled its FDA-certified Soft Gripper that’s able to pick irregular shapes and delicate items in food and beverage, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals production, as well as manufacturing or packaging. The gripper uses three interchangeable silicon-molded cups in star and four-finger configurations to pick up almost any small object under 2.2kg (4.8lbs). It also complies with FDA 21 CFR for non-fatty items and EC 1935/2004 and unlike traditional vacuum grippers, it requires no external air supply, so it can reduce both cost and complexity. The One System Solution now integrates with robots from ABB Robotics and Hanwha Precision Machinery.
