Kurt Introduces Revolutionary New Robotic Gripper

The new Kurt RV36 Robotic Arm Gripper saves space and money and improves efficiency with quick-change, customizable jaws and custom accessories. 

The new RV36 Robotic Gripper is a two-finger parallel gripper featuring a revolutionary patent-pending design that allows automated finger/end-effector changes without changing the gripper body. Pull studs secure quick-change fingers so customers can save on gripper-body expenses and create greater part-holding flexibility using multiple finger configurations on a single gripper body. 

Loaded with features, the compact Kurt RV36 Gripper comes standard with integrated electronics featuring sensors that ensure fingers and parts are in place and ready for production. High-strength aluminum alloy keeps gripper weight to a minimum while a hard-coat finish reduces wear and increases life in the field. The RV 36 Gripper achieves maximum clamping and un-clamping force with double-acting piston design. Carvable aluminum- or steel-finger options are machinable and can work in a variety of applications. Additional finger sets are available sold separately. 

Features include:

  • Automated finger changes in seconds with patent-pending pull stud design 
  • Integrated electronic sensors ensure finger position and readiness 
  • Light weight design: high-strength aluminum alloy 
  • Hard-coat finish 
  • Maximum clamping and unclamping force from double-acting oval piston 
  • Self-centering wedge-type design for high force transmission and centric gripping 
  • Small gripper size saves space in robotic cells 
  • Optional aluminum or steel finger configurations 

Kurt RV 36 Grippers offer additional space- and money-saving features. The smaller gripper size allows easier storage where space is a premium and pull-stud automation saves money for customers with a quick-change finger system allowing multiple finger options for a single gripper body. The RV36 is the first robot gripper to automatically change gripper fingers and to accommodate an endless variety of end-effector options. 

The Kurt RV36 is available now.
