The mGrip Modular Gripping System

The mGrip modular gripping system is a suite of configurable gripper and controller products that enables reliable, high-speed picking of traditionally hard to grasp items in the food processing and consumer packaged goods industries.

Why mGrip?

New applications require new capabilities. The adaptability and modularity of mGrip is the key to automation growth into new areas. mGrip handles differences in product size, shape, and weight so you can reliably pick irregular or delicate products at high speeds.

Differentiate your business

Pick and place new products by adding new technology to your end-of-arm tool portfolio.

Reduce project no bids

Hit the end customer’s requirements with higher throughput and less product damage so you can close more deals.

Increase customer satisfaction

Use our soft gripping technology when suction or rigid end-of-arm tools won’t get you the pick reliability you need.

Developed with our award-winning technology, learn what makes mGrip different.

Adaptable Gripper

mGrip’s adaptability allows you to reliably pick challenging products on virtually any robot type. One gripper can be used to pick multiple SKUs.

Versatile Platform

Use off-the-shelf components to quickly build production-grade tools in different configurations.

Reliable Design

Engineered to last in demanding environments. mGrip is currently used globally in various manufacturing settings and has completed billions of picks.

Food Grade

An IP69K rating, food-grade materials, and sanitary design elements make mGrip a great choice for food manufacturing.

Fast

Execute multiple picks in under a second for your high-speed applications.

Precise, Repeatable Control

Effectively pick from tightly packed product arrays and place accurately into various forms of packaging.
Control Units and Software Systems

All of our grippers are powered by a Soft Robotics Control Unit (SRCU).

Our high-performance electro-pneumatic controllers allow precise programming control of gripping parameters, enable mGrip to execute multiple picks in under a second, and optimize the useful life of our grippers.
