The demand for food automation has increased significantly due to the pandemic.
Food processors grappling with a shortage of labour (particularly skilled labour), more rigorous food safety standards and greater competition are turning to industrial robots to address these challenges.
Soft Robotics’ industry-proven, IP69K-rated soft grasping mGrip™ modular gripping systems enable food-grade handling of produce, bakery and protein items.
mGrip™ solves complex food processing tasks previously reliant on human labour, resulting in a boost in productivity while simplifying maintenance, cleaning and product turnover.
mGrip is easy to integrate and handles a wide variety of product sizes, shapes and weights to reliably pick irregular and delicate products at high speeds. Because the soft grippers mimic a human hand, they are ideal for processing many food products, including chicken, beef, doughnuts, bread, apples and tomatoes.
Today, mGrip is deployed worldwide with hundreds of picking systems in daily operation and has made billions of successful picks in demanding production environments.
This innovation by Soft Robotics is the only picking solution fully optimised to automate food processing.
Pick challenging products with virtually any robot type. One gripper can be used to pick multiple SKUs.
Off-the-shelf components to quickly build production-grade tools in different configurations.
Engineered to last in demanding environments. mGrip is used globally in various manufacturing settings and has completed billions of picks.
Execute multiple picks in under a second for your high-speed applications.
An IP69K rating, food-grade materials, and sanitary design elements make mGrip a great choice for food automation.
Precise, repeatable control
Effectively pick from tightly packed product arrays and place accurately into various forms of packaging
