Intelligent Unigripper adjusts vacuum to suit load

TIA's Unigripper is an 'intelligent' vacuum gripper that uses patented technology to automatically sense where products are located and create the vacuum lifting force needed at these locations. This reliable and economic way of improving material handling cuts production downtime because many different products can be quickly and safely lifted with no need to change tooling.

These Innovative grippers are manufactured from custom extrusions to minimise costs. Standard lengths are available from 400-1200mm on fast delivery; custom lengths are also possible. Either built-in vacuum generators or threaded holes for an external vacuum source can be specified. Mounting adaptors can be provided to suit any robot, gantry, manual or custom installation. The grippers can be simply mounted on aluminium extrusions to carry them to the dimensions and contours of any product.

Unigrippers handle crates, boxes, furniture, pallets, perforated steel plates, bricks, bottles, oil drums, large heavy metal, plastic or paper rolls, corrugated sheeting, ski sticks, shrinkwrapped food and many other items of different sizes, weights and contours.

Multi-chamber versions with each chamber separately controlled are also available, as are Side Grippers with part of the gripper rotating up to 90degrees and round, layer, bottle and cap variants

TIA also provides accessories to ease integration into existing systems and complete custom grippers to customer requirements.
