AGS Automation Greifsysteme Schwope GmbH, a German robot EOAT supplier since 2010, showed off its “universally applicable” gripper system components at NPE2015. AGS offers seven different standard head systems for vacuum grippers and angle elements. Another key component is its PreciGrip EOAT kit. A key feature is to simplify later addition of elements. Users can adjust the acting elements such as suction cups, sprue gripper jaws, or gripper fingers without removing other elements. This cuts changeover time. Also, T-slot nuts are no longer needed. Preci-Grip is said to be 100% compatible with all established EOAT systems in the market.
