Electroadhesion-Based Robotic Grippers

Description

Grabit Inc. announced today that it is launching a new line of robotic grippers based on the company’s electroadhesion technology.

Electroadhesion is a highly-flexible, ultra-low energy technology that enables the handling of delicate, and difficult to grasp parts. Grabit grippers are simple to operate and eliminate the need for bulky, energy-intensive, and costly vacuum pumps or custom mechanical gripper attachments.

Grabit P-Series (Panel-Series) Grippers are ideal for a variety of applications that include handling fabric, apparel, composite fibers, pre-preg, mobile devices, solar cell components, printed circuit boards, flex circuits, and glass displays. P-Series grippers are offered in five different sizes for a variety of parts and applications. Grabit grippers can also be combined to meet the specific needs of a customer’s application.

Grabit grippers offer enhanced flexibility, reduced complexity, gentle handling, and low-energy consumption.

Grabit’s electroadhesion technology eliminates the need for part-specific grippers and minimizes gripper changeover, dramatically reducing costs and downtime.

In addition, Grabit’s electroadhesion technology offers scratch and smudge-free handling on glass and other delicate surfaces. With ultra-low energy usage, in the range of 1-10 watts, Grabit grippers enable new "un-tethered" applications with mobile robots maximizing battery life.

Grabit’s novel technology allows the "de-stacking" and manipulation of single layers of fabric, apparel, composite fibers, wire grids and mesh that have proven to be very challenging to automate with conventional gripper technology.
