PHD Pneu-Connect Flexion Radial/Parallel Gripper System
The PHD Pneu-Connect® with Flexion Gripper is a cost-effective pneumatic end-effector system featuring built-in valves, mounting, and the URCap software package which provides seamless integration with Universal Robots. PHD FLEXION, a new technology inspired by the ultimate gripper: the human hand, is suitable for both collaborative and industrial applications. FLEXION’s configurable design allows for an unparalleled range of application ability and offers the potential to solve challenges that previously had no answer.
Finger arrays of one to five fingers can be mounted to the parallel hub and positioned to suit the user’s unique requirements. The arrays can be rotated on the hub to spread opposing arrays apart or together for optimal workpiece encapsulation. Each finger can be equipped with up to two switches to sense positions such as “part gripped”, “missed part”, or “starting position.”
FLEXION’s Parallel and Radial models solves many difficult applications including variable shaped items, irregular shapes, or items that are sensitive and can be crushed, loose-filled bags, and even items intended for human hands.
- Seamless, cost-effective, end-effector integration
- Ease of use
- Incorporated MAC® valves and control board
- Flexion can be ordered with multiple finger arrays
The Pneu-Connect Flexion package includes configured gripper, mounting plate, and a cuff that connects directly to the cobot arm. The cuff makes it easy to attach a PHD pneumatic gripper to a Universal Robot and incorporates a built-in MAC directional control valve for opening and closing the gripper, requiring only one airline.
This system comes with “UR CAP” software—an application specific to the UR robot. The CAP runs inside the UR control software and provides a graphical interface, making the programming and setup of the pneumatic gripper easy to use and integrate through the UR Teach Pendant.
