FlexGripper - Clamp

Palletizing gripper

The FlexGripper - Clamp is a simple plug-and-play extension to the ABB IRB 460 or IRB 660 palletizing robots. For maximum palletizing efficiency, the gripper can handle up to 70 kilograms.

Wide-ranging flexibility
The IRB 660 and the compact IRB 460 palletizing robots can be made even more effective for end-ofline palletizing applications with the addition of the FlexGripper - Clamp.handling up to 70 kilograms.

Easy to integrate, easy to use
The FlexGrippers are easy to install and program. The robot HMI, FlexPendant, comes pre-configured with FlexGripper input/output signals which greatly reduces both set up and programming time. And the graphical user interface simplifies the testing of palletizing routines. For example a FlexGripper pickand-place test can be carried out with just a single click.

Faster, more accurate programming
ABB‘s range of palletizing robots and FlexGrippers are also fully supported by the RobotStudio Palletizing PowerPac. This user-friendly, PC based software, comes pre-configured with all ABB robots and gripper models. It allows users who have little or no robot programming experience to create programs and simulations, and design complete palletizing installations. This enables a palletizing system to be configured rather than programmed, and saves up to 80 percent in commissioning time.

Speed and precision
The FlexGripper-Clamp is equipped with sensors to verify the presence of cases. Their wide clamping strokes are adaptable to different case sizes. The included hook units ensure secure handling of the cases when moving at high speeds. It also comes complete with all air hoses and signal cables and is ready to plug-and play on your chosen robot model.

Unrivalled experience and global support
With more than 30 years of experience in the palletizing sector, ABB has sales and service organization in 53 countries and over a 100 locations.
