Why Using SoftGripping Cobot Gripper?

Our Fingers Adapt To Your Objects

Most of the time, objects have a defined shape. Most of the time, but not every time! Consider the bag of buns handled by a SoftGripper in the picture. As you can see, it does not have an exact geometrical shape because the buns can shift inside the package or have different shapes and sizes. The fingers can adapt to the package around, allowing SoftGripping to grip every shape. The adaptive and flexible SoftGripping fingers perform their task regardless of varying shape and weight distribution.


Do you see anything dangerous at our grippers? No? Right! There is nothing! Cobots works in slow speed and slow acceleration with a low load capacity. They are safe while working with humans. But what is with the thing after the tool flange of your Cobot? SoftGripping Cobot Soft Gripper are the safest work buddies you can imagine.

A Centric Base Or A Parallel Base For Your Cobot Soft Gripper ?

It’s Easy. But We Are Happy To Support You!

We differentiate our Cobot Soft Grippers between centric bases and parallel bases.  

Centric bases are best to be used when you have to handle round or triangular objects. Also cylindric objects if you want to grip it from above. Best examples for round objects are fruits like apples or oranges. Examples for cylindrical objects are cans of hairspray or drinking glasses.
Parallel bases are used for cuboid or long objects like bread, chocolates, lying bottles or pineapples.

How Many Fingers And Which Angle For Your Cobot Soft Gripper?

For the centric bases you can choose between 3 or 4 fingers and for parallel bases you can choose 2, 4 or up to 8 fingers.

Furthermore you can choose between 3 different attachment angles for your fingers.

The specific layout of your gripper system may vary depending on the weight and size of the objects to be handled.
