/ Most recent by Etienne_Samson
On November 7, 2018, Robotiq launches the production of an improved revision of the world's best-selling adaptive grippers. Both the 2F-85 and 2F-140 benefit from many feature updates while offering the same key benefits that made thousands of manufacturers choose them since their launch 6 years ago.
These new Adaptive Grippers are less exposed to factory air, dust and fluids. The finger base has been redesigned to simplify fingertip changeover and ensure a reliable grip. The Grippers’ design is smoother and rounder, with every sharp edge removed. New versions also include accessories holder near the grippers' base. The 2F-85 and 2F-140 are connected to Universal Robots' safety function, which makes them more collaborative than ever.
The patented finger design, enabling both internal and external parallel gripping, as well as a unique encompassing grip mode, is key to making those Grippers the most flexible on the market. This launch adds up to the release of the Hand-E Gripper in June. Manufacturers can now choose the best up-to-date Robotiq Adaptive Gripper for their needs.
The 2F-85 remains the right choice for applications with high pinch-force and heavy objects, while the 2F-140 is the ideal solution to pick objects of almost any size and shapes. Finally, Hand-E is perfect for high-precision tasks and work in harsh industrial environments.
