Material: PA6 Carbon
Industry: Industrial Machinery
The project is a redesign of a pair of grippers for 6-axis robots Kuka Agilus and Kuka KR Cybertech.
The aim is to replace the metal with which the original tool was previously produced, in order to manufacture a new version both lightweight and mechanically performing, according to our client’s needs.
We redesigned the shape of the traditional grippers and used an innovative additive manufacturing technology to create a continuous carbon fiber tool coated with a nylon body. Carbon PA6 allowed to keep the mechanical characteristics of the piece, increasing its lightness by 50%, compared to the original version. Furthermore, the geometry of the grippes has been simplified, reducing the components to 3, compared to 5 for the original part.
