ROHM to Showcase Gripping Technologies at Automate 2017

At Automate 2017 in booth 2053, RÖHM Products of America will highlight its broad range of end-of-arm tooling for robots, including its new RRMG customizable synthetic grippers, RPP Parallel grippers and RZP Centric grippers, along with RSP Flex swivel units.

RÖHM's new RRMG grippers are designed to generate 30% more clamping force for large workpieces than their predecessor while providing a gentle touch when needed. Because the gripper jaws are synthetic and free forming, they adapt to and envelop workpiece geometries, whether round or prismatic in shape. Common applications include processing complex and/or fragile parts, such as electronics components, medical catheters and automobile speedometer needles.

"An optimized structure with reinforcements for maximum rigidity and long service life enable the RRMG to perform up to 16 million gripping cycles without experiencing wear or requiring maintenance," said a company spokesperson. For maximum process control and automation, users can add optional position monitoring to the RRMG via installable sensors.

Available in two sizes with gripping forces of 80 and 152 N, the RRMG grippers are customizable. RÖHM develops these custom grippers around 3-D workpiece models provided by customers. The company also relies on advanced 3-D printing, selective laser sintering and other processes to manufacture many of its end-of-arm work handling products.

Other gripping technologies on display at the show will be the RPP Parallel gripper and the RZP Centric gripper. RPP grippers provide universal gripping of round and angular workpieces with two parallel gripper fingers, while RZP Centric grippers, equipped with three centrically arranged gripper fingers, are suited for universal and self-centering gripping of round workpieces.

"Visitors to the booth will also discover the benefits of RSP Flex swivel units, specially designed for automated loading and unloading of machine tools, as well as for the fast and precise insertion of components in assembly systems," said the spokesperson. "The units feature an innovative shock absorber concept and infinite variable adjustability in all end positions for smooth and precise swiveling. The modular structure and extensive expansion options make RSP Flex swivel units flexible and reliable."
