The challenge and solution of soft robotic grippers in China


Rochu, a production engineer at Micron Products, said the project's initial requirements were:

Lay off two operators on this machine

Avoid significantly reducing cycle time

Blau said the cost savings will come from the operator's salary savings.


Micron has automated part of the editing process. He used one end of Ranger Automation's robotic arm and arm tool, which took 64 separate clips from the mold, placed them on a table device that hooked the four clips and sent them to the conveyor. The conveyor belt brings the clips to two operators who collect the clips from the conveyor belt and place them in the box in the correct orientation.
