BEDESCHI’s New Grippers Technology
Thursday, September 22, 2022
Thanks to the cross competences developed in different industries applications and its long experience in handling and automation in the heavy clay ceramics sector, BEDESCHI designed and manufactured a wide set of special grippers to be installed on robots for the handling of wet, dry and fired bricks. The aim is to constantly offer to its customers state-of-the-art solutions, as to solve their main operative problems and improve their plant output. The challenge was accepted by the BEDESCHI R&D Department, that can draw on skills and know-how created in more than a century to face it up.
The goal was to design lighter grippers, adaptable to a broader range of anthropomorphic robots while maintaining the mechanical strength and reduce the wearing of the spare parts, ensure maximum gripping elasticity, avoiding deformation and/or breakage of the handled product. It is important to consider that a weight reduction ensures handling more material with the same energy consumption, reducing energy waste.
