Robot End Effector

Robotic manipulator designed for tray manipulation in the Tire Manufacturing Industry


High performance, multi-function gripper end effector for the Tire Manufacturing Industry. 


This gripper combined two functions using both a pressure sensitive clamping device and a high power vacuum mechanism.  The low profile design allows the robot end-effector better access to its target.

Project: End Effector
Industry: Tire Manufacturing
Technology:  Pneumatics / Vacuum
Cycle Rate:  1.5 sec.

The degrees of freedom were carefully controlled to ensure adequate compliance with sufficient stability.  Pneumatic solenoids were remotely located, on the manipulator, to enhance responsiveness.
