Fixtures/Tooling Details

Motoman designed and provided a custom multifunctional vacuum gripper to handle various size boxes of product, as well as cardboard slip sheets. The gripper uses eight vacuum cups that are adjustable in two directions to handle one or two cases at a time, depending on the product size. Almost all products are handled two at a time. Part-present sensors are included. The same sensors are also used to sense the height of the slip sheet stack in the slip sheet rack. Vacuum grippers require only 40 cfm at 90 psi of compressed air, and feature digital vacuum gauges/ vacuum sensors.
