OnRobot is set to showcase two powerful new grippers designed for heavy-duty applications at its booth at Automate 2024 in Chicago – 2FG14 and 3FG25.

The new three-fingered 3FG25 gripper reportedly provides users with 25 kg (55.1 lb) of payload power in a compact, all electric, lightweight form.

The two new grippers feature an all-round plug and produce experience, including fingers with multiple configurations, flange adapters, cabling and comprehensive software.

Handling heavier parts requires higher forces and handling bigger parts requires a finger platform designed to accommodate larger custom fingers. The new 3FG25 gripper addresses both requirements, while still being, fully electric, and easy to use. Set to launch officially on May 30, 2024, pre-orders for the 3FG25 can be placed at Automate.

OnRobot’s newly launched 2FG14 is also making its North American debut at Automate. Doubling the payload and gripping force of its 2FG7 gripper while also providing 30 percent more total stroke, the 2FG14 is a lightweight parallel finger gripper with a payload of 14 kg (30.8 lb). The gripper is ideal in for example CNC machine tending applications that involve handling heavy metal workpieces with a new base design for challenging work environments where workpieces are frequently exposed to oils or cutting fluids.
