Highly sensitive robot gripper: No need for pneumatics

Force-sensitive, dynamic, energy efficient and with a range of applications – these qualities are what distinguish the new robot gripper created by the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechatronic Systems Design IEM. It can transport fragile objects from one production step to the next without damaging them. The gripper is specially designed for the food industry, where careful handling of fragile products helps to avoid waste. The electric drive makes costly pneumatics obsolete. The robot gripper will be presented at the joint Fraunhofer booth at the Hannover Messe 2023 from April 17–21 (Hall 16, Booth A12).
