With the NEW SCHUNK technology carrier Co-act gripper JL1, SCHUNK is setting the stage for the first intelligent HRC gripper that directly interacts with humans. Adjustments to the gripping processes can be made in real time using diverse sensor systems. In essence, various “senses” are used to record, evaluate and communicate situational, environmental and operational conditions.
In the future, SCHUNK Co-act grippers will be able to transmit all relevant data about processes andsurroundings to the control and production systems. The focus will be on the intelligent flow of materials, process optimization and continuous documentation. The system perfectly enhances the intuitive interaction between the gripper and the operator.
