Soft Gripper and Controller System

mGrip

The mGrip modular gripping system is a suite of configurable soft grippers and controller products that enables reliable, high-speed picking of traditionally hard-to-grasp items in the food processing industry.  mGrip’s proven soft gripper technology allows robots to safely and efficiently pick and pack food products while also increasing throughput and efficiency.

Why mGrip?

The Problem: The food automation industry is often challenged with with products that cannot be handled with traditional suction vacuum or rigid end-of-arm tools. These traditional methods damage variable and fragile food products resulting in downtime and production loss.

Our Solution: mGrip is made of soft elastomers and pneumatically powered. Yet, its real strength is the construction which involves engineering the distribution, configuration, and size of a network of parallel air chambers embedded in the elastomer that inflate from a single pneumatic source. Soft Robotics’ food-grade soft gripper technology allows robots to safely and efficiently pick and pack singulated food products while also increasing throughput, reducing waste and providing less reliance on human workers to production needs. In operation worldwide, mGrip is reliable, safe and proven.
