Commercial Applications

We have built a fundamentally new class of robotic grippers that are adaptive, plug and play, repeatable and reliable. Our advanced grippers (technically speaking, they’re air actuated soft elastomeric end effectors) enable industrial applications that previously were off-limits to automation.

From warehouse logistics involving objects of unpredictable size, shape and weight, to advanced assembly currently requiring significant labor and food handling where sanitation and delicate manipulation are important, Soft Robotics grippers are designed to excel where conventional robotic technology fall short.

 

 

THE soft robotics SYSTEM

Unstructured, delicate and continuously changing tasks used to represent a challenge to automation. With Soft Robotics actuators, food & beverage and industrial robotics can adaptively handle objects of varying size, shape and weight with a single easy-to-use device, eliminating the need for tool changes and complex vision requirements — and transforming the possibilities of automation.

Our fully integrated system is ready to plug-and-play with the robotics equipment you already have in place. Solutions to difficult automation challenges in industries like Food & Beverage, Advanced Manufacturing and eCommerce & Logistics can be rapidly developed and delivered.

 

CONTROL UNIT

Soft Robotics Control Unit, Generation 2

Our high-speed (>3 Hz) controller with millisecond precision ensures repeatable and reliable actions. Compatible with every commercial robot controller on the market, the Soft Robotics Control Unit, Generation 2 provides turnkey integration; no additional components or control hardware needed. CE marked, FCC Compliant, IP65.
