June 19, 2018 – Bimba announced the launch of the Collaborative Robot Vacuum Tool (CRVT). This device offers a plug-and-play end effector option for collaborative robots.
Developed to meet the versatile nature of collaborative robots, Bimba’s CRVT comes off-the-shelf as a solution with no external valve required. Although designed to support a variety of applications with minimal configuration, Bimba offers an array of pump options to enable users to meet the vacuum requirements of their application.
As part of Universal Robots’ UR+ program, the CRVT is tested and approved to integrate directly with UR robots, ensuring set-up, programming, and operation can all be accomplished. Compatibility with additional robotics manufacturers will be available in the future.
The CRVT comes standard with venturi vacuum pump, valve, vacuum switch, muffler and cups integrated in an end effector.
