Area Surface Grippers – Vacuum Grippers

Anubis 3D specializes in advanced vacuum grippers for various industrial applications. We offer two types of vacuum grippers: the Area Surface Grippers (ASG) and the Spider Grippers (SPI).

The grippers/end effectors are designed to provide efficient and reliable gripping solutions for a variety of applications, whether you need precise manipulation in manufacturing such as pick and place, palletizing, and depalletizing or delicate handling in a pharmaceutical setting.

With our cutting-edge additive manufacturing techniques, we ensure that our grippers are not only lightweight “up to 30% lighter than conventional aluminum end effectors” but also durable and customizable to suit your specific needs.

All our vacuum gripper products come equipped with a tool-changing system. This feature enables quick and effortless swapping between different end-of-arm tools, providing flexibility and efficiency in your operations.

Vacuum Gripper Bundles

Anubis 3D line of Vacuum Grippers can handle a wide range of applications and are ideal for picking up uneven and even workpieces made of different materials. Materials can include cardboard, glass, wood, shrink wrapped beverages, sheet metal, metal plates, plastic, cookies, snack bars and more.

The ASG “Area Surface Gripper” offer a unique advantage over traditional vacuum grippers in that they can be bundled with different components according to the specific applications. The table below illustrates some of the most popular bundles:
