  Purple Robotics Introduces PR10 Vacuum Gripper

8. June 2018 – Purple Robotics has unveiled the PR10, a vacuum gripper for collaborative applications. With its dual-grip function, the PR10 can handle multiple items in a single operation. The PR10 does not require an external air supply, so there are no air hoses to handle and the gripper operates independently of changes in pressure, cleanliness and outdoor air availability. With rounded edges, the PR10 is designed for collaborative implementation with human workers, using all three models of Universal Robots (UR). The PR10 has been designed for a range of applications, including pick-and-place, machine maintenance and palletizing.

The global market for collaborative robots, or Cobots, is estimated at $ 3.3 billion by 2020, with annual growth rates in excess of 50%, according to Qyresearch Publishing. The PR10 gripper can be used in most Cobot applications.

Purple Robotics has already signed two US distributors – Olympus Controls and Thinkbot Solutions – and expects another nearly half a dozen more soon.

Purple Robotics has already entered into a partnership agreement with the founder's former employer, Universal Robots, and has just entered the global online distribution channel UR + for pre-certified robotics accessories. In this partnership, Purple Robotics brings together more than 77 developers of robotic software, accessories and end-of-arm tools that, once tested and accepted, will share this channel with Universal Robots.
