A Gripping Tale

2007-11-01: One of the keys to the advancement of robotics is the development of new and innovative grippers. Welcome to the future. Advancements in robotics are about doing more with less, and about copying human arm movements for maximum efficiency. But robots do more than human arms can – they lift more, faster and tirelessly. Greater flexibility, lighter weight materials, new technical advances in sensors, a finicky retail environment where purchasing managers are buying less but more variety (mixed palletizing), and a move into new industries like food processing (hygienic design) – these are some of the dominant trends in…
