Getting a grip – with gripper technology made by Keller HCW

Simple gripping tasks can be managed with standardized grippers. However, the automated gripping of complex components and the handling of automation jobs outside of this standard often require the use of special grippers.

Keller IMS “Intelligent Machinery Solutions” is a manufacturer of special machinery and plants with many years of experience in a wide variety of industries.

The worldwide tried and tested gripper systems made by Keller perform a wide range of automation and handling tasks. From industrial to portal robots, the innovative tools and grippers from Keller increase automation and flexibility, accelerate processes and reduce operating costs.

The variety and, in some cases, the individuality of the products to be handled require special tools and solutions. Keller offers the optimum solution for specific applications and always keeps an eye on the overall costs.

The grippers are not only limited to “opening” and “closing”, they also “turn, space and group” products during the handling and robot cycle, thus replacing some of the additional equipment and machines required.

With a feeling for what is feasible, Keller’s highly qualified engineers plan, develop, design and assemble not only the most complex gripping systems. Complete solutions and deliveries including industrial or portal robots and their assembly and commissioning as well as the respective safety equipment are part of Keller’s core competence. For example, the working areas of industrial robots can be extended by linear axes, which are adapted to the application.

Based on many years of experience, Keller’s engineers provide support with:

Feasibility studies and simulations

The adaptation of new robot grippers in the customer’s plant

Programming and commissioning

Supply of complete solutions, including e.g. inlet and outlet transport and grouping equipment
