Piab’s Kenos® FlexiGrip - KFG

Piab’s Kenos® FlexiGrip, KFG, is a vacuum foam gripper that can be used as a single gripper on robots and cobots or combined into an end-of-arm tool (EOAT) for use with industrial robots.  The foam surface offers the versatility to pick a variety of different products without having to make adjustments.  A modular design provides the flexibility for fast and easy set-up in case of product changes as well as simple integration with existing equipment.


Available in round or rectangular shape with flow restriction, check valve or bag gripping technology, the KFG offers a stable and rigid grip even on uneven, rough, structured, or textured surfaces and can be used to pick up porous or non-porous materials.

  • Three different version are available to accommodate requirements:  valve gripper, flow restriction gripper or flexi bag gripper

  • The flow restriction version contains calibrated orifice adjustment, can rotate up to 360°, is thin and lightweight and enables high speed applications

  • The valve version contains auto-regulated check valves and can handle a single product not covering the full surface or complete product layers, it isn’t sensitive to dust and can rotate 80°

  • The bag gripper can be configured with a normal frame for soft bags or an additional frame for heavy bags filled with liquids

  • The KFG can be used in centralized and decentralized vacuum systems

  • Plug & play solution with UR cap for UR cobots

  • Round foam version with diameters of 80 mm and 100 mm

  • Rectangular foam version:  80 mm x 80 mm and 120 mm x 120 mm
