Robotiq, a manufacturer of Adaptive Robotic Grippers, and the Motoman Robotics Division of Yaskawa America, Inc., a leading industrial robot manufacturer, today announce they have formed a strategic partnership. Robotiq’s Adaptive Gripper has been added as a complimentary partner product to Motoman Robotics’ product line. Through this alliance, the companies will deliver dexterous robotic gripper tooling on robots that will increase application flexibility and reduce tooling costs.

The industrial-grade Adaptive Gripper has three articulated fingers that can adapt automatically to a wide range of parts of varying size and shape. The end-of-arm-tooling is best suited for applications where tens of hundreds of different parts need to be handled by a single robot. Sample applications include: machine load / unloading, assembly, part positioning, welding, inspection and material handling.
