Automate More with End Effectors that Mimic Human-hand Dexterity
Have you ever considered the wonder that is the human hand? The bones, muscles, and sinew that make up our elegantly designed hands allow us to pick, place, and position objects of all shapes and sizes without even thinking about the action. In many ways, it is the uniqueness of the human hand that has sorely limited the automation of many tasks in manufacturing and distribution.
Traditionally, robotic end effectors have been rigid, not able to perform with the same finesse or dexterity of the human hand, and have not been able to adapt to the increasing proliferation of SKUs necessary to meet customer expectations for customization.
UR+ partner Soft Robotics makes it easy to deploy UR cobots for an infinite number of applications that require flexibility, dexterity and accuracy. Soft Robotics’ innovative end-effectors, built to mimic the human hand, are ideal for automating a wide range of tasks, including
- Packaging and Palletizing
- Pick and Place
- Machine Tending
- CNC Machine Automation
No matter the shape, size, or position of the objects that need to be sorted and placed, SRDK – UR+ solutions increase productivity and efficiency for companies of all sizes. Watch these cobots in action here:
