Scaled-Down, Customizable Robotic Arm Gripper

KURT WORKHOLDING, exhibiting at IMTS 2022 – booth 423433 – launched a new RV24 robotic gripper, a two-finger parallel gripper featuring a patent-pending design that allows automated finger/end effector changes without changing the gripper body itself. Quick-change jaws allow manufacturers to improve automation efficiency, save on gripper-body expenses, and create greater part-holding flexibility.

The compact and feature-rich Kurt RV24 gripper is supplied with integrated electronics featuring sensors that ensure fingers and parts are in place and ready for production. High-strength, aluminum alloy keeps gripper weight to a minimum while a hard-coat finish reduces wear and increases life in the field.

A new gripper size allows for smaller part handling, lighter minimum clamping force and easier storage where space is a premium.

The RV24 is designed to work with a range of robotic applications and can perform well on cobots or smaller robots.

“When we introduced the RV36 back in 2020, we knew it would be the first in a family of robotic grippers,” according to Jeff Lenz, Kurt Manufacturing EVP, Proprietary Products. “While working with customer’s we determined that a smaller, cobot-compatible gripper made the most sense as our next robotic automation product.”

The gripper’s double-acting piston allows for flexible clamping and un-clamping force. Customers can choose from machinable aluminum or steel finger options that can be machined to work in a variety of applications. Additional finger sets are also sold separately along with finger clips for holding multiple gripper sets.
