Soft Custom Grippers for packaging and food handling tasks

SofTouch Gripper Solution is comprised of 3 gripper types, which are designed to address a wide array of handling and packaging tasks, where direct application of vacuum is not being considered as the optimal solution.

The SofTouch grippers are a great substitution for mechanical end effectors, when quality and stability improvements are at stake. Great for delicate and mark prone products as well as for unhandy thermoformed bags.

The design of each gripper series is developed to serve different food handling and packaging tasks, which allows us to cover the majority of product categories. 

In this solution we combine vacuum technology with ridged parts, making it possible to have a firm, yet gentle grip. 

Additionally, product tailored approach allows us to deliver the most efficient solution for a concrete robotic task. 

The integration of this gripper solution will give flexible pick and place handling with minimum maintenance needed.

Need to solve a more advanced lifting task? Let us develop it for you.
