The gripper that integrates the functions of a hand
Camozzi Automation smart gripper integrates an innovative technological concept with the functions of a hand, combining flexibility, efficiency, ergonomics and intelligence all in one device.
It can perceive objects and analyse and estimate their weight, size, and distance.
This research project is developed with IIT Italian Institute of Technology in Genova. It aims to develop a series of products and technologies for the Camozzi grippers of the future.
The gripper is equipped with an integrated sensor system capable of collecting information about the grasped component and the surrounding environment, processing it and implementing appropriate reactions based on the situation.
The goal is to interface the gripper to the cobots on the market in the simplest way - a "plug & play" solution - using the most common communication protocols. This solution would increase process productivity and waste reduction, improve operator and plant safety, and grant greater flexibility and reusability.
It is one of several technological developments toward a smart, innovative, interconnected and eco-sustainable factory.
