OnRobot has launched the 2FG7, a complete, low cost, easy to use, out-of-the-box, cleanroom-ready parallel gripper. Designed to enable companies of all sizes to set up gripping applications at low cost, the 2FG7 can be deployed within minutes and is specially designed to handle demanding payloads –even in tight spaces. The new 2FG7 gripper is ideal for low-volume, high-mix production and enables fast ROI for many different applications, including machine tending, material handling and assembly.
Why 2FG7 Parallel Gripper?
OnRobot’s 2FG7 is a complete, low-cost, off-the-shelf electric parallel gripper that can be deployed within minutes and requires no custom engineering for installation, programming, or maintenance. The 2FG7 is easily redeployed on any major collaborative or light industrial robot, making it ideal for low-volume, high-mix production, and enabling fast ROI for many different applications
Seamlessly integrated with the OnRobot product range and compatible with all major collaborative robots and light industrial robot arms, the 2FG7 allows manufacturers of all skillsets to set up gripping applications quickly and easily. The 2FG7’s ease of use ensures visibility during the deployment process, greatly reduces the need for custom parts and cuts the time to ROI. Meanwhile, intelligent feedback features, including grip detection and lost grip detection, further simplify the deployment process.
The 2FG7 is a production-ready gripper built to withstand harsh manufacturing conditions and applications. In addition to being IP67-certified, the 2FG7 has attained cleanroom certification (ISO Class 5), which is required for many handling applications in the pharmaceutical and electronics industries. It also complies with ISO/TS 15066 regarding collaborative robot cell risk assessments.
The 2FG7 is powered by an integrated electric motor, which provides several advantages over pneumatics-based gripper systems. 2FG7 users can easily program force, speed and stroke control settings through an intuitive software interface. This makes the gripper ideal for high-mix/low-volume production since it allows for quick and easy settings adjustments depending on the parts being handled.
The precision provided by the 2FG7’s electric motor allows the gripper to provide a finger position resolution of 0.1 mm (0.004 in) and a gripping time of 200 mm/s. For end users, the ability to make precise adjustments to stroke, range and finger position supports flexibility across a wide range of applications.
By contrast, pneumatic grippers provide limited, low-resolution force control through air pressure adjustments. Further, pneumatic systems don’t provide intelligent grip detection capabilities and can negatively impact air quality by releasing contaminants into the work environment.
