GRIPKIT. The smart gripping solution for Universal Robots.
GRIPKIT is the turnkey handling solution for Universal Robots. It is based on Weiss Robotics' high quality gripping modules that prove their high robustness and reliability day by day in industrial automation. GRIPKIT contains everything you need to realize handling and manipulation tasks within minutes. GRIPKIT is available as servo-electric or smart pneumatic version and covers a gripping force range of 7.5 to 550 Newtons. It is fully compatible to all Universal Robots models with controller CB 3.1 or newer.
How does it work?
Just mount the gripper to your robot arm and connect it via the supplied cables and the interface converter to your robot's USB port. Plug the provided USB flash drive into the teach pendant of your robot and install the URCaps plug-in. Now you can either choose one of the provided examples from the USB flash drive or simply start with your own program from scratch. All these steps are described in detail in the GRIPKIT operating manual, too.
No script code
As it provides graphical commands for gripping, releasing and state control of the connected grippers, no special script programming knowledge is required.
Increase your flexibility
GRIPKIT supports the simultaneous operation of up to 8 grippers on one robot controller. As the plug-in is the same for all GRIPKITs, you can mix pneumatic and electric grippers of all types. In addition, offline programming without connecting the grippers physically is supported.
Teach your workpiece
GRIPKIT comes with a unique function that allows you to intuitively teach the grip parameters for your your workpiece. This is as easy as moving the gripper fingers manually to your workpiece.
The URCaps plug-in provided with GRIPKIT has been designed to seamlessly integrate into the Polyscope software environment that runs on the UR controller.
The Plug-In allows the comfortable configuration and control of up to four different workpieces per gripper. Give your workpieces meaningful names to easily identify them later during programming and operation.
