Soft Robotics, Bedford, Mass., released the mGrip, what is said to be the company’s first on-demand, modular automation system.

Each kit comes equipped with the components needed to build tools with either 2-6 fingers, offering limitless configurations and spacing options.

When paired with the Soft Robotics Control Unit, the mGrip gripper can cycle 3-4 times per second.

One tool conforms to new and changing productions in real-time, ideal for high-mix environments. Plus, mGrip kits come in a standard (aluminum) or food-safe (stainless-steel) option.
