HRC-03 Cobot Gripper Allows Manual Guidance


The fully electric HRC (Human-Robot-Collaborative) gripper model HRC-03 is a typical 2-jaw parallel gripper that has a maximum stroke of 10 mm per jaw and can be connected directly to the tool I/O connector on the robot flange (“plug & play”). The gripper features a Free Drive Button, which is conveniently located directly at the upper end of the HRC gripper and allows the switching of the robot into free drive mode. Thus, the robot can be moved freely by hand to any position.


This feature allows the operator to have both hands free to guide the robot. Prior to this, the operator would have to press the free drive switch on the robot’s control pendant with one hand and thus only had his other hand available for robot guidance. The gripper is available with an analog position sensor or alternatively with two digital sensors, which is already sufficient for many simple applications. In addition, the gripping force of the HRC gripper can be adjusted manually in four stages—from 50 to 190 N.


The HRC-03 has no sharp edges and is designed so that accidental snagging is practically impossible with its all-round shape. This functionality in conjunction with a mechanical self-locking of the jaws and the associated gripping force maintenance offers maximum safety in every application. All HRC grippers including meet the high requirements of the protection principles according to ISO/TS 15066 (HRC standard) and are BG/DGUV-certified.
