The Piab piSOFTGRIP 50-2 pinch gripper is a vacuum-based soft gripper that can grip sensitive and lightweight oblong objects with odd geometries and/or objects with an unusual surface. It has two gripping fingers and a sealed vacuum cavity, all made in one piece. The gripper is not sensitive to dust, and the gripping force is easily adjusted and controlled by the applied vacuum level. The gripper can be put in rows (multiple mode) to support picks of extended objects. piSOFTGRIP is made from silicone, which is approved for direct contact with food (in accordance with FDA 21 CFR and EU 1935/2004 regulations). The gripping force is controlled by simply adjusting the vacuum level.
