The Universal Robots from R. A. Rodriguez are proving immensely popular for human/robot collaborative working. Indeed the latest generation of these six-jointed arms includes a newly developed and patented safety system that enhances the robots' use for tasks that require human interaction. Now R. A. Rodriguez is extending the scope of its service to include the supply of Robotiq grippers to complete the Universal Robot package.
This is an ideal combination as it makes affordable automation accessible to any manufacturer. R. A. Rodriguez has become the only supplier in the UK to offer the complete range of Robotiq grippers. These are off-the-shelf products available in 2-finger and 3-finger configurations and are known for their ease of integration. A notable model in the range is the 2-finger 85 which has been specifically designed for collaborative work in terms of payload, flexibility and user-friendliness.
Completing the Robotiq range is the FT-150 Force Torque Sensor that provides flexible handling and sensor feedback to the Universal Robot. This 6-axis Force Torque Sensor is designed for force and position control, it's easy to integrate and offers immunity from external noise. Use the signal directly as digital input to your robot controller, without the need for an external signal processing box.
