On Robot RG6 Gripper
The RG6 gripper is a flexible electric gripper specially designed for robots from Universal Robots. The higher adjustable force (25N to 120N) enables three times higher payload (6-8 kg) and wider stroke (160 mm), ideal for manufacturers automating the movement of delicate or heavy objects. The RG6 comes with factory-installed safety shields. The standard fingers can be used with many different objects, it is also possible to fit custom fingers.
Compatible with all Universal Robots arms, the RG6 is easy and fast to install –as the cable attaches directly to the robot arm, therefore enabling operators to quickly modify assembly on the factory floor without the assistance of an engineer.
(Like the RG2 gripper,) the movement and force of the RG6 gripper can be controlled by the user. The control is done directly on the Universal Robots user interface. Both gripper and robot control are stored in the same program. The RG6 is capable of measuring the width of the object and detect if the object is grasped or not. All feedback signals are sent to the robot and can be used to make the robot act based on the inputs.
