Robotic hand section for use on a large-volume production line

Customer

Mandate

To produce a robotic hand section for use on a large-volume production line.

Goals

  • To reduce the weight of large-size (16” x 14”) robotic end-of-arm tooling that needed to be able to move quickly, with weight being the key issue.
  • To integrate mechanical and vacuum-based gripping systems.

Results

  • Proposal of a hybrid solution combining aluminum (traditional tooling) and thermoplastic (3D printing), in order to deliver a robotic hand that would be both hard-wearing and lightweight.
  • Considerable weight reduction.
  • The assembly has been working smoothly for many years.
