SoftActuators for your Own High Speed Pick And Place EOAT

Individualisation Was Never Pretty Easy Before!

SoftActuator - The Key in automation

SoftActuators are made to be used

Build your own base or use our versatile profiles

We provide the SoftActuators, you choose the shape of your base. This is really special! You can freely choose the type of your base. You like the flexibility of EOAT systems with aluminum construction profiles? You want to build your own solution with a bended plate (or we can do it for you)? You like to use our versatile profiles? Let’s talk about what you need! 

Our SoftActuators are the Fingers for your gripper

Our proven pneumatically driven fingers are made of FDA-approved silicon rubber with a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles. You can mount them on every EOAT setup without the need to get a special base. Our SoftActuators are made in hygienic design.

SoftActuators in changing production setups

The changing of a automation setup for a different type of gripping object to be handled can be complicated. It may requires new parameters for positioning. This can be an adjustment of the TCP height to the new product, an adjustment of the distances in the tray or a calibration of the camera. 

In most applications, it would also require a completely new gripper. Not with SoftActuators! Just adjust the position of the fingers at the base and move on to the next item set!

High-Speed applications with SoftActuators

Our Fingers Adapt To Your Objects

A picture says more than 1000 words a video much more. SoftActuators being used to handle multiple and versatile foods in one gripper setup. Simple adjustments of spacing and angles of the SoftActuators leads to a wide range of objects being gripped within one gripper setup. Using our profiles with slot holes for your setup, when packaged foods are handled. The SoftActuators are mounted using standard screws and can be used in any gripper setup, also for special bases in hygienic design.

Don’t forget to keep in mind that pneumatic valves are required to operate the SoftActuator finger actuators. Use your own pneumatic system or check out our Controlbox.

Why use SoftActuators?

SoftActuators As A Standard Component In Automation

A component for rapid gripper prototyping

SoftActuators are a perfect complement to standard components such as suction cups and linear actuators to form the moving elements such as grippers that ultimately handle goods in automatic setups. 

Using Soft Actuators in EoAT setups

You need to pick up multiple products and place them on a tray and use multiple tools with one multigripper? A solution would be an end of arm tooling (eoat) with multiple suction cups, fingers and pneumatic elements.
