mGrip from Soft Robotics solves picking challenges

We are pleased to offer these unique EOAT grippers for robotic automation from Soft Robotics. These industry leaders offer robotic grasping solutions for challenges that couldn’t previously be automated. As modular gripping systems, they can be set up quickly for all kinds of picking tasks, including food safe handling. We’re sharing the latest Blog from Soft Robotics with common FAQs on choosing the right EOAT for robotic automation.

Choosing the wrong EOAT can drive down productivity and increase downtime. Integrators, distributors, and end-users have questions about our mGrip solution. We gathered our top three most common mGrip questions and answered them here.

Can Soft Robotics’ mGrip tool handle my products?

Yes, absolutely. Manufacturers have been unsuccessful to automate mainly due to unreliable grasping. Traditional robotic technology struggles to pick up everyday products especially if they vary in different shapes, weights, and sizes. The reality is that robots have a hard time picking products up and putting them down. While traditional robotic technology can’t get a firm grip on products, mGrip can and does.

mGrip can successfully pick a range of products, from IV bags to bagged potatoes. Our adaptable gripping solution conforms to the shape of products with an enveloping grasp and in real-time, making your opportunities for automation endless. Successful picking requires reliable grasping.

Why should you use a Soft Robotics controller?

  • Speed. Our controllers allow the gripper to cycle 3-4 times per second. That’s faster than a human hand!
  • Precision control. You can precisely set the exact grip strength and the open amount for each application.
  • Finger life. By using our controllers, you’ll get the longest possible finger life.

Other than its easy to use capabilities, our controllers give you peace of mind. Know that your system will achieve optimal speed, precision, and finger life when you use a Soft Robotics controller. And finally, it’s a plug and play system that’s easy to set up. This saves you design time and gets you up and running faster.

Is mGrip food safe?

As leaders in food automation, we know food safety is a top priority for our customers. For contamination-free production, you need a specialised food-safe EOAT. The mGrip solution is compliant with the European regulation EC 1935 and FDA for food contact and GMP for full traceability and processes to reduce risk.

Our tooling enables safe food handling and contamination-free production. First, mGrip is ingress protected meaning food can’t penetrate the tool and enter the system. No more wasting time cleaning out filters. Second, it’s designed with radial edges to make it easy to clean. If your operation handles food, you’ll want to ensure ingress protection from liquids, dust, or even chocolate syrup. Need proof? Check out this Ingress Protection Video.
