Piab’s piSOFTGRIP® Vacuum-Driven Soft Gripper

Piab’s piSOFTGRIP® integrates gripping fingers and a vacuum cavity into a unique, one-piece design, resulting in a simple and robust product.  As it is vacuum driven, the gripping force can easily be controlled by simply adjusting the vacuum level.  Suitable for lightweight, fragile, small objects with odd geometries and/or unusual surfaces, piSOFTGRIP is recommended for items ranging in size from 10 mm up to 50 mm diameter.  Ideal for gripping applications in the Food, Bin Picking, Pharmaceutical, and MedTech industries.
