The products of years of development, AirPicker and AirGripper end-effectors combine pneumatic pressure control
with the physical attributes of rubber. The result is an innovation that can give robotics or mechanical handling systems an important degree of touch and allow products to be handled securely and gently. The AirPicker endeffector is inserted into a product while deflated, then inflates outwardly to "hold onto" the product's interior walls. The AirGripperend-effector collars
around the product, then the sleeve inflates inwardly to form a grip around the product's exterior. Models are available with various inflation pressures to handle light to heavy loads. This cushioned transporting can help eliminate damage, breakage, and other processing problems. AirPicker and AirGripper end-effectors have already been proven in assembly, loading,
shifting, conveying and many other manufacturing operations around the world.
