Magic Gripper Pick & Place Solution

Our challenge: To find a pick & place solution for 2.5kgs of potatoes in bags made from thin walled plastic film. The solution: We used the VMECA Magic Gripper fitted with P48-S3 vacuum cups each cup has independent vacuum. VMECA’s Magic Gripper is an ideal solution for pick and place: Handling films, bags, cans, bottles, packets, foils and foods (to name a few). Some systems need multiple points of contact. Each Magic Gripper generates its own vacuum and works independently so, a cup failure or poor contact from one cup does not compromise other cups. For a complete end of arm handling solution, VMECA has a dedicated aluminium extrusion which not only presents the Gripper it also acts as an air distribution manifold, further reducing the requirement for fittings and simplifying installation.

Eco-friendly Materials:
The Magic Gripper can be redeployed onto different machinery rather than scrapped and if that’s not possible, a recent study found, 95% of the materials used to produce the Magic Gripper are recyclable. So, if a machine or robot becomes obsolete you can be certain the end-of-life impact of the Magic Gripper is minimal.
