ABB FlexGripper Clamp

FlexGripper Clamp

Palletizing Gripper

The FlexGripper – Clamp is a simple plug-and-play extension to the ABB IRB 460 or IRB 660 palletizing robots for high-speed case palletizing applications.

For maximum efficiency, the gripper is available in one or two zone versions. For a lean configuration handling light-weight products, the one-zone clamp gripper version is ideal; the two-zone version is ideal for full-row palletizing of up to 60 kilograms.

The FlexGrippers are easy to install and program. The robot HMI, FlexPendant, comes pre-configured with FlexGripper input/output signals which greatly reduces both set up and programming time. And the graphical user interface simplifies the testing of palletizing routines. For example a FlexGripper pick-and-place test can be carried out with just a single click.
