The FH-R80 gripping module is FORMHAND’s smallest gripper and is designed primarily for collaborative applications. It consists of a module frame and a gripping cushion.

The moulded gripping cushion can grip just about any object. With its 80mm diameter, it succeeds in gripping a large variety of different and complex objects, as the gripping module hugs the geometry and surface of the components without any gaps.

The real magic is in the blue cushion: The FORMHAND gripping cushion is filled with a freely movable granulate and thus adapts to any surface. The process is gentle and thus ensures true shape variability while protecting the gripped object.

Shape flexible gripping

The moulded gripping cushion can grip almost any object. The round gripping cushion filled with granules adapts itself seamlessly to any surface and thus ensures true shape flexibility.

Gentle gripping

During gripping, the gripping force is spread across the entire surface of the object, resulting in gentle object handling due to the low pressure difference.

Modular and scalable

The gripping cushion itself can be changed in just a few steps thanks to the quick-release fastener. The gripping module can also be used in combination with other modules so that complex gripping and clamping systems can be set up.

Multifunctional and Efficient

Thanks to its geometry-independent handling, the FORMHAND module can be used as a mobile gripper, as a stationary clamping element or as a powerful clamping element. Thanks to the wide range of objects that the FH-R80 can handle, you reduce the number of grippers your need overall, thereby saving on purchase cost, as well as energy, storage and maintenance costs.

Certification, interfaces, commissioning

A CE installation declaration and operating instructions are available for all FORMHAND modules. All common interfaces for connecting the modules have been mapped in the design of the FORMHAND modules. This ensures simple and fast deployment in the sense of Plug&Produce.

The FORMHAND FH-R80 module adapts to grip the targeted object thanks to its unique gripping cushion. By adapting its shape to the object, it can thus create a sealed system. Even when the object has a strange or difficult shape.

This shape adaptation is followed by the evacuation of the gripping cushion, which thereby adapts to the surface in a form-fitting manner. During gripping, the gripping force is transferred to the entire covered surface of the object, which leads to gentle object handling due to an overall low pressure difference. This particular model can handle objects weighing up to 2kg.

The FORMHAND gripping pad itself is attached to the frame module via a quick-release fastener and can thus be changed quickly.

The FH-R80 Gripping Module is built by FORMHAND. FORMHAND is a young, innovative mechanical engineering company that has set for itself the goal of developing and manufacturing extremely intelligent and adaptable handling solutions. Their technology combines universal, granulate-filled gripping cushions with an electrically generated volume flow and thus replaces rigid handling solutions. Our adaptable gripping cushions open up enormous potential for flexible and efficient processes.

Where is it used?

Many companies use the FH-R80 gripping module for their collaborative applications. Others employ the gripper in intralogistics so as to save themselves additional costs. Since the FH-R80 adapts to a wide variety of shapes and surfaces, businesses save by not having to buy a gripper adapted to every new material they use.

When adaption is necessary, the gripper cushion itself can be filled with different granulates and can thus be modified to meet the needs of specific applications.

This is FORMHAND's smallest gripper. It can lift up to 2kg and be easily integrated into collaborative applications.
