Video: World's First DGUV-certified Gripper For Collaborative Robots
The mechatronic gripping hand, designed for applications in assistance and service robotics, amazingly resembles its human role model in terms of size, shape and mobility. With the help of a total of nine drives, your five fingers can perform a wide variety of gripping operations. Elastic surfaces on the front limbs ensure that the gripped objects are held securely. In addition, numerous gestures can be displayed, which facilitates visual communication between humans and service robots and increases acceptance for use in the human environment.
For compact solutions
Since the control, regulation and power electronics are completely integrated into the wrist, particularly compact solutions can be implemented. It is controlled via an RS-485 interface. The Schunk SVH can be connected to standard industrial and lightweight robots via defined mechanical interfaces. The power supply is designed for battery-compatible 24 V DC for use in mobile applications.
Hand-tied gripper for cobots
With the DGUV certification for collaborative applications, Schunk is further expanding its lead in gripping systems for human-robot collaboration. Last year, the family-owned company had used various MRK grippers to demonstrate impressively how humans and robots will work hand in hand in the future. The highlight was the Schunk Co-act gripper JL1, which, as the technology carrier of a new generation of grippers, is able to interact and communicate directly with people.
The aim of Schunk Co-act grippers is to enable complex interaction of different sensors and safety mechanisms in the future. Force measuring jaws and visual monitoring are just as important as skins made of tactile and capacitive sensors or a current-based force control. Comparable to humans, who usually combine several senses to evaluate a situation, Schunk Co-act grippers will in future bundle information from several sensor sources and derive the most accurate possible picture of reality.
