Electrical Grippers for High-Payload Cobot Applications

May 1, 2024

OnRobot-3FG25-gripper-Automate-2024New electrical grippers from OnRobot, designed for heavy-duty, collaborative robot (cobot) applications as a response into ever-increasing cobot payloads, make their North American debut at Automate 2024, May 6-9 in Chicago, IL.

The three-fingered 3FG25 gripper (pictured) can handle 25 kg of payload power in a compact, lightweight form. Handling heavier parts requires higher forces and handling bigger parts requires a finger platform designed to accommodate larger custom fingers. The new 3FG25 gripper addresses both requirements, while being fully electric and easy to use, according to company officials.

OnRobot’s 2FG14 doubles the payload and gripping force of the company’s 2FG7 gripper while also providing 30% more total stroke. A lightweight parallel finger gripper with a payload of 14 kg, the gripper reportedly is ideal in machine-tending applications that involve handling heavy metal workpieces. And, It features a new base design for challenging work environments where workpieces are frequently exposed to oils or cutting fluids, such as CNC machining applications. 

The two new grippers provide an alternative to less-adaptable pneumatic systems, according to OnRobot officials, and feature a plug-and-produce experience as well as multiple-configuration fingers, flange adapters, cabling and comprehensive software that removes the complexity of robot programming.
