Businesses need to respond to trends such as individualized products and shorter product lifecycles. PIAB fulfills exactly these requirements with the new compact KCS vacuum gripper. The KCS vacuum gripper system is able to accommodate products of various shapes, materials and surfaces. Thus, the cobot can be deployed at different points in the production and its capacity can be optimally used. SMBs in particular opt for a cobot as their entry into automation, in order to automate mostly manual processes with small batches and a large number of variants. In this case, a reasonable payback period is a prerequisite, something that can only be implemented by lightweight robotics in the form of the cobot. In many cases, it is used as a manufacturer-supported solution in the areas of handling and packaging. The KCS vacuum gripper with its low weight and strong suction power offers essential advantages in this context. Being able to handle a variety of product variations coupled with the fact that the new Piab cobot gripper tolerates inaccuracies in the placement of the object to be handles, the KCS vacuum gripper is an uncomplicated all-rounder. Due to the soft, adaptable foam surface, the object is not damaged even if the height of the object was not accurately measured in the machine learning process. The main part of the Piab KCS system consists of a separate pump unit that integrates modular vacuum generation in the smallest of spaces. The valve technology is freely configurable and a digital or analog vacuum detection can be integrated, which makes the KCS system a plug-and-play unit. The second part is the gripper unit. It is connected to the pump unit via a tool-free quick-change system. The entire unit can be attached to all common cobot models with a corresponding adapter.
