"Easy to use" concept in Gripper (EOAT) construction

Isn't it the goal of all of us to organise our daily processes as simply and time-savingly as possible? This is no different in Gripper (EOAT) construction and the use of AGS Grippers (End of Arm Tools). As one of the pioneers in gripper construction, we have given a lot of thought to this and can draw on a wealth of experience from our own Gripper construction, because the life cycle of a Gripper is also an important component.

This is where the "Easy to use" concept came from. The creation of a gripper with a long service life, but also the rebirth of a new gripper when it has been built with the AGS modular system, is included in this concept. 
Managing Director Marc Schwope explains the decisive basic idea by saying that the goal is to design and build a complete gripping system with only standard components as far as possible. From the adaptation of the Gripper (EOAT) to the handling device or the articulated arm - Scararobot, to the basic frame, to the individual actuators such as suction pads, gripper fingers, gripper tongs, parallel grippers, rotary units and lifting units.

There are many Gripping systems on the market, but it is certainly known that one or the other bears the signature and initial thought of senior Franz Schwope.

The AGS modular system has a number of advantages for which it can be used:


- Example
Construction templates are available and can be used, so that one does not have
to do not have to start from 0.

- Montageboy (auxiliary frame for rational gripper construction)
Simulation/illustration of the removal process and function test, so that a functioning
gripper goes to the machine, machine downtimes are thus rapidly reduced.

- CadGrip 2.1 Gripper construction software
Configuration via drag and drop, of your own gripper Generation of parts lists and easy ordering in the AGS shop

- Training course
Get to know optimisations in the process, both at AGS in-house and at your site. Get tricks of the trade from the practitioner.

- Gripper construction on site
If time is short but help is urgently needed, we will be happy to come to you on site.

- On-site service
In the event of machine downtime due to a crash, we will help you with the repair, virtually overnight.

- Documentation online
Often the documentation is not always available, with us it can be called up online by means of the type plate.

- Maintenance service
We help you to maintain the gripper correctly and give tips for a long life cycle.

We will be exhibiting at the K trade fair 2022 in Düsseldorf Hall 12 Stand C48.
