Robotic gripper

November 1, 2008





Intended for handling all types of meat, fish and cheese in fresh, cooked, frozen and sliced forms, Applied Robotics’ meat gripper is manufactured from light, FDA- and USDA-approved materials and adheres to all production cleaning guidelines. Able to open and close rapidly and smoothly, it can be used on all currently available high-speed robots. The pneumatic, hygienic washdown-safe gripper features a pick-up head that enables portions or groups of portions of product to be loaded accurately and quickly into trays, thermoformers or other packaging conveyances. When used in a multiple head operation, each head can be programmed to produce a different size or type of pack format.
