Kenos KCS gripper - your flexible cobot friend
Small, powerful and flexible, Kenos® KCS vacuum gripper helps you handle anything, anywhere.
Piab's Kenos KCS gripper enables a collaborative robot (cobot) that can handle just about anything, anywhere, at any time. This makes it the ideal ”co-working” tool, especially for small businesses, where flexibility is essential. Originally developed together with a leading cobot manufacturer as a tailor-made automation tool for one customer, the resulting vacuum gripper cobot proved so successful that Piab decided to offer it more widely.
- The KCS (Kenos collaborative small) gripping system is equipped with integrated COAX SX cartridges.
- The quick change system of KCS allows the gripper to move from one application to another very quickly.
- The COAXSX cartridges- providing high performance even at low or fluctuating feed pressures. The KCS can be equipped with 1 or 2 COAXSX cartridges.
- The KCS is equipped with a flow restrictor suitable for handling different sized sealed or leaking objects with the same lifting device even if the total foam area is not covered, the KCS will still maintain enough vacuum level to lift the object.
Combining Piab's proprietary air-driven COAX technology for highly efficient vacuum ejection with an easily replaceable technical foam that molds itself around any surface or shape, the Kenos® KCS gripper can be used to safely grip, lift and handle any object. Standard interface (ISO) adapters enable the whole unit to be attached to any cobot type on the market and, with a body made in a lightweight 3D printed material, it can be easily moved to perform different jobs in different parts of a production site, warehouse or other setting.
A cleverly designed quick-change system allows the same unit to be fitted with a special gripper for plastic bags. A simple twist and a secure locking mechanism enables the Kenos® KCS gripper to be configured and ready for new tasks within seconds, improving the productivity of operations and reducing system downtime.
