Pick & Place Applications

Increased production output by speeding up your Pick & Place process is just one of the benefits of using OnRobot grippers in your production. By installing a collaborative robot with an OnRobot gripper, you also get the same precision hour after hour as it never tires. With the programmable force in the OnRobot gripper, it handles the most fragile parts with ease.

In the food and pharma industry, automating your Pick & Place process strongly decreases the risk of product contamination.
