NEW ADDITIONS BRING GREATER ROBOT DEXTERITY

12 February 2019

New from RARUK Automation are two Robotiq innovations designed to make automated and even lights out production even easier. The first, Force Copilot, is an intuitive software development for applications that need force torque feedback and the other is the Hand-E gripper specifically developed for collaborative robots.

The sensing functions of the new Robotiq Force Copilot increase flexibility and reliability in machine-tending, assembly, finishing and pick & place applications. A suite of set-up tools allows the user to hand-guide the robot on complex trajectories.

The software makes it easy to place objects precisely in jigs, trays and chucks and facilitates assembly applications through alignment, indexing and insertion functions. Finally, the intuitive interface unlocks finishing applications, with adjustable adaptive compliance and constant force for all robot axes.

Force Copilot is now a standard feature of the Robotiq FT 300 Force Torque Sensor that can be seamlessly integrated into the second of the new additions to the RARUK Automation range. This is the new Robotiq Hand-E gripper whose compact and ergonomic shape makes collaborative robot hand-guiding safe and easy.

This latest product in RARUK Automation’s line-up of adaptive grippers, is the first UR+ electric gripper to be developed to take full advantage of the benefits of the new Universal Robot e-Series. Its high accuracy and 50mm parallel stroke make it perfect for precision assembly tasks, while its sealed design ensures reliability in the toughest manufacturing conditions.

Hand-E gripper comes with a 3-fingertip kit so automation engineers can easily integrate the gripper in their application. It operates with the same intuitive programming software as the other models in the Robotiq gripper range which enables full control over its position, force and speed.
