Intuitively operating Software for gripper construction

AGS, now, enables interactive configuration in the field of gripper assembling.

The reproducible gripper assembling is an important component in a modern production environment for an automated and equally efficient production.

AGS, the specialist of automation, now offers a novelty for user:
The interactive configuration of gripper systems, which is all based on the CAD Program CAD Grip 1.0

Operating the program occurs easy by intuitive handling. Previous knowledge, for example of a CAD system, is not necessary. CAD Grip is functioning fully independent without a combined usage of any other CAD Software. The user is able, to configure his own gripper offline. Software Installation becomes no longer necessary, which usually means, in particular for larger companies, a higher need for internal coordination with the IT-Division. CAD Grip comes on a USB-Stick. The application is automatically started by a self-executed file. Therefore an individual installation on your company computer is not necessary. “Operating is easy as pie.” The user imports his building components for an appropriate gripping and arranging. After that, it´s possible to choose gripper parts out of a various gripper modular system with “Drag and Drop” and arrange them systematically. At this point the software supports the user, as the building parts have snap points to allow a very simple and clear allocation. Once the snap point has been chosen, all the matching parts out of the entire AGS assortment are shown as a recommendation for construction. The user receives valuable tips for constructive alternative solutions as he proceeds. The virtual construction is performed controlled and optimized. The arrangement of the matching components is taken place automatically.

It will be shown on the screen, if the building part is in accordance with the automation solution. Therefore order mistakes are avoided from the very first step. That applies in particular for the mounting of the building parts in practice.

Is the configuration completed, the complying parts list will be exported to the AGS Customer Portal and is ready for instantly placing your order. The user will be provided with the appropriate format for his CAD-Software, as there is Inventor, Autocad, Solidworks, Proengineer or Catia, only to name a few. With this software, AGS also provides you with important details. For Example the weight will be automatically added up and the total weight of the end of arm tool will be shown to the user in the end.

Once you have created your own solution, you are able to reproduce this any time and several users can use it that way. The report proceeds by exporting and creating a PDF-file.

About us

Company details

End of Arm Tools (Gripper) for industrial robots just will not let go of Marc Schwope. With his new company, AGS Automation Greifsysteme Schwope GmbH, Schwope is supplying the industry with high quality solutions for grippers and in doing so is following his philosophy of “everything ingenious is simple”. Two business areas occupy a central position in the activity of AGS – the modular gripper system and construction of custom-made complete grippers.

The broad modular system already includes more than 1250 components for constructing grippers and is constantly growing while remaining compatible with competitor products. The basis is formed by the positive-fitting slot-nut clamping profiles widely available on the market, to which active elements such as gripping fingers and aspirators can be connected. The international innovation presented early in 2011, the PreciGrip constitutes a functional further development. Quick and precise to install, it represents the alternative to the previous profile system. Many components improved in detail make the AGS gripper module particularly user-friendly. Customers who have a gripper system built for their production conditions receive as always a product in keeping with the standard from AGS, with innovative details that however offer productive advantages in practice. There are currently 22 employees working at AGS.
