Odense, Danmark – 22. august 2017
Fleksibilitet, brugervenlighed og ekstraordinær tilpasningsevne er allerede veletablerede egenskaber der kendetegner griberne fra On Robot. Nu kommer så den nyeste griber, RG6, der udover de førnævnte egenskaber, også tilbyder større løfteevne og længere vandring til gavn for bearbejdning, materialehåndtering og emballering.

On Robot Launches Next-Level Customizable Grippers for Collaborative Robots Tasked with MultI-size objects
On Robot, the fast-growing Danish manufacturer of innovative electric grippers for collaborative robots (cobots), today launched a flexible and energy-efficient gripper for cobots tasked with handling objects of various sizes. Easy to install on the arm of a cobot and simple to program, the RG6 is a bigger and stronger version of the company’s popular RG2, with higher payload than other two-finger collaborative grippers available on the market today. This higher adjustable force (25N to 120N) enables three times higher payload (6-8 kg or 13.2-17.6 lbs.) and wider stroke (160 mm or 6.3 in.), ideal for manufacturers automating the movement of delicate or heavy objects in applications such as pick and place, computer numerical control (CNC), machine tending, packaging and palletizing, and assembly.

The board and investors behind the fast growing startup On Robot are recruiting a new CEO
Since a funding round in October 2016, when a list of significant investors added capital knowledge, and experience, the manufacturer of collaborative robot grippers, On Robot, has seen very strong growth during Torben Ekvall’s successful tenure as CEO. Over time, differing strategies on company goals and how to reach them have arisen, leading Ekvall to leave the company to pursue new ventures.
Investor and former CEO of Universal Robots, Enrico Krog Iversen, will serve as interim CEO until the company has found a successor.
We would like to thank Torben Ekvall for his contributions at On Robot.

The Copenhagen-based company has increased its productivity on their CNC machines by retrofitting them with RG2 Dual Grippers from On Robot that significantly decrease cycle times and allows for production to continue after operators have left the workshop.
Industrien installerer flere og flere samarbejdende robot-arme. Det øger samtidig efterspørgslen på de fleksible, sikre og brugervenlige robot-gribere fra On Robot. Derfor forstærkes salgsorganisation nu med den erfarne salgschef Kenneth Bruun Henriksen. Med sin solide eksporterfaring skal han udbygge distributørnetværket i Europa yderligere. Produktionsfremgangen og medarbejdervæksten har desuden sprængt rammerne, og derfor er On Robot netop flyttet fra Odense Havn og ind i et større domicil i det sydvestlige Odense.

RG2 grippers bring extensive new capabilities for flexibility, ease-of-use, and customization; Danish company appoints Gary Eliasson as general manager in North America to continue aggressive global sales growth
On Robot, the fast-growing Danish manufacturer of innovative grippers for collaborative robots, is bringing its technology to North America to provide manufacturers with more user-friendly, safe and flexible grippers for collaborative robots (cobots). Officially launching to the North American market at Automate 2017 in April, On Robot’s two-finger RG2 grippers—available in both single and dual versions— mount easily on the arms of cobots without any external wires; for robots that have infinite rotation of the last joint, this enables unprecedented flexibility and productivity. The RG2 grippers can be easily programmed directly from the same interface as the robot, and the gripper can be modified without previous programming experience, making them ideal for collaborative robot users.
