Gripper arm system This customizable end-of-arm-tool (EOAT) kit from AGS Automation Greifsysteme Schwope GmbH comes with four different gripper arms and eight different heads, and can be used with all robot types. Its vacuum cups and sprue grippers can be mounted at 90-degree angles or can be adjusted to the required angle, and the Prism profile shaft makes it easy to attach and remove the heads.
What’s new? The gripper arm system.
Benefits Flexibility. With 32 possible variations for attaching suction cups, grippers and other components, users can find a combination of options to fit their application. It also reduces the cost and storage requirements that would come from investing in multiple types of specialized EOAT.
