Grippers for Robotics

  • February 18, 2016
    9:00 am - 11:00 am

Robotic material handling requires grippers that are appropriate to the job. From secure gripping in a machine tool or micro-gripping in electronics manufacturing, you need the right tool for the right application.

Join us as we host an information session on Grippers for Robotics. Learn how this technology can work for you.

Learn about grippers and end of arm effectors, how to select them, and the steps to determine the best approach for a production task.

We will discuss

  • Parallel grippers
  • Three-point grippers
  • Angle grippers
  • Swivelling grippers

We will also focus on vacuum gripping—the various designs, materials and sizes of suction cups, and modular suction gripper systems with a wide range of different suction cup holders, angle and height compensators and filters.

If you are an Automation Manager, Production or Process Engineer, Shop Foreman, or anyone interested in robotics and automation, then you need to attend.

Presented by Robert White and Dan McRae of Festo Canada. Robert is an Applications Specialist at Festo Canada with 25 years’ experience in industrial automation. Dan is the Regional Account Representative at Festo, with over 10 years’ experience in technology and automation.
