Piab has introduced piCOBOT, an end-of-arm (EOAT) vacuum tool designed specifically for collaborative robots (cobots). It is designed to fit any type of cobot arm.
Offered as a development kit, piCOBOT comprises a vacuum pump unit, a gripper unit and two suction cups. The standard kit includes four different sets of suction cup models suitable for a variety of tasks, but users can also choose from the company’s range of suction cups for more tailored solutions.
The tool’s 3.8-5.6” wide and +/-15 degree tiltable gripper arms can be fitted with two suction cups. Alternatively, the gripper can be replaced by a single suction cup mount directly on the piCOBOT pump unit. For optional single or double object picking, dedicated sense valves ensure safe operation regardless of mode.
While a compact format and low build height of 2.7” allow use in space-restricted areas, the low weight of Piab’s solution offers a great advantage compared with similar competing systems.
Piab’s piCOBOT plug-and-play cobot end-of-arm-tool (EOAT) is designed to fit any type of cobot arm.
