- RG6 Gripper
RG6 - FLEXIBLE 2 FINGER ROBOT GRIPPER WITH WIDE STROKE
- Flexible grippers can be used for a wide range of part sizes and shapes
- Plug-and-produce design reduces deployment time from a day to an hour
- Easy deployment with out-of-the box grippers reduces programming time by 70%
Why RG6 Gripper?
The RG6 – 6kg payload robot arm gripper is a flexible collaborative gripper with built-in Quick Changer, up to 150mm stroke. It provides intelligence, fast deployment, easy customization and programming. The outstanding software features that come with the product enable intelligent applications. The RG6 gripper is a tool for wide range of applications. Customized fingertips provide extensive gripping flexibility, customers can use one tool for different parts of the production process maximizing robot utilization. The RG6 works seamlessly with our Dual Quick Changer and any of our other grippers to help you maximize utilization of your robots. RG6 is TÜV certified, comes standard with safety shields.
The RG6’s advantages and features
The RG6 gripper can be combined with the Dual Quick Changer module. The Dual Quick Changer operates with the same principles as the Quick Changer module. However, the Dual Quick Changer is designed to enable the use of two end-of-arm tooling grippers (EoAT) at the same time, allowing, e.g., a RG2 gripper and a RG6 gripper to be used simultaneously.
Our unique robot end-of-arm tooling gripper helps you maximize the use of your robots. With the Dual Quick Changer installed, production time is reduced, because more work pieces are being handled simultaneously. Overall, the Dual Quick Changer will approximately increase production efficiency by 50%.
Automatically detects the stroke at program start without initialization. The maximum grip stroke of the RG6 is 150 mm (adjustable).
Automatic "lost grip detection", "grip detected", "continuous grip" and "measure width" detections remove the need for manually programming these features.
The fingertips of the gripper can be easily customized, fitting the product shape for stable gripping.
Automatic calculation of TCP eliminates the need for extensive programming in addition to reducing the deployment time.
Automatic payload calculations simplify the programming of the RG6 gripper.
Automatic depth compensation ensures the gripper’s fingers sweep in parallel across work surfaces.
The gripper comes with pre-integrated software that is easy to install and program, so even employees with no technical background can set it up.
Both the RG2 gripper and the RG6 gripper are TÜV certified.
Applications of the RG6 end-of-arm tooling gripper
Can handle fragile products using customizable finger positions.
Able to automatically stack packaged products.
Ideal for high mix, low volume, can sort products by material, shape and size.
Ensures precise picking and placement of products. Flat objects can be picked up because of automatic depth detection. Can be used for multiple purposes due to adjustable grip force.
Can relieve your human employees of tedious and repetitive tasks, ensuring increased productivity and safety.
The dual gripper setup allows multiple products to be processed simultaneously.
Donk Industries is one of the largest small-series aluminum parts manufacturers in the Benelux countries. To help keep inventories low and supply customers on time with a wide variety of products, an RG6 gripper with HEX sensor from OnRobot automatically feeds one of eight CNC machines around the clock.
With a shortage of skilled labor, this lets employees move to more interesting tasks while doubling output of the CNC machine with higher and more stable product quality.
Tomenson Machine Works, a family-owned manufacturer of world-leading hydraulic manifolds in Chicago, is focused on continuous improvement. Collaborative automation in its pin-stamping application improved quality, profitability, flexibility, and worker satisfaction.
The OnRobot collaborative RG6 gripper handles dozens of different part sizes with fast and easy change-overs, and sets the stage for ongoing automation in CNC tending, deburring, and packaging.
RG6 is used particularly where heavy and monotone tasks can be taken from the employees to be done by collaborative robots, says strategic project manager Bastian Fietje: »The work station where we use the gripper from OnRobot replaces a packaging process where the operator used to work manually on stacking products on top of each other, pressing out the air between them.
The manual process required a lot of repeated heavy lifting and a lot of stress on the shoulders. We have removed this physical strain from the employees,« he says.
