  • For automation specialists RARUK Automation; Universal Robots and Robotiq grippers & sensors provide the perfect combination for off-the-shelf, customised automation solutions. To widen the scope of this partnership, RARUK Automation has just announced the availability of the new Robotiq Dual Gripper.  It is designed specifically for machine tending applications where the robot is required to remove a completed part from the machine and replace it with a new one for processing.

    The clear benefit of the Robotiq Dual Gripper is productivity.  By having two grippers on the same Universal Robot arm shortens cycle times, creates a more efficient production line and increases output.  Indeed, it’s even possible to have two, Dual Grippers on the same robot to boost productivity even further.

  • In response to growing demand for a simple, competitively priced and flexible, automatic bulk parts feeding system, RARUK Automation has introduced, FlexiBowl®.  It allows entire families of parts to be fed reliably into the assembly process and is ideal for manufacturers whose production involves frequent product changeovers and reduced volumes.

    FlexiBowl is highly versatile and suitable for feeding a wide variety of parts regardless of their shape, fragility, material composition, weight and surface characteristics.  They can be smooth, sticky, tangled or burred, yet FlexiBowl will feed the parts uniformly, effectively and, if required, continuously.

    The working principle is very simple. FlexiBowl includes a rotating disk and an impulse generator; the disk itself is actuated by a servomotor that allows clockwise or anti-clockwise movement. When parts are released by the hopper, they fall onto the moving disc and are separated by the rotation and vibration. Acceleration, deceleration and impulse frequency are all selectable according to the part geometry to achieve the optimal result.
