Soft Robotics has built a fundamentally new class of robotic grippers that are adaptive, plug and play, repeatable and reliable. Their advanced grippers (technically speaking, they’re air actuated soft elastomeric end effectors) enable industrial applications that previously were off-limits to automation.

From warehouse logistics involving objects of unpredictable size, shape and weight, to advanced assemblies currently requiring significant labor, and food handling where sanitation and delicate manipulation are important, Soft Robotics soft grippers are designed to excel where conventional robotic technology falls short.

The Soft Robotics System

Unstructured, delicate and continuously changing tasks used to represent a challenge to automation. With Soft Robotics actuators, food-and-beverage and industrial robotics can adaptively handle objects of varying sizes, shapes and weights with a single easy-to-use device, eliminating the need for tool changes and complex vision requirements — transforming the possibilities of automation.

Our fully integrated system is ready to plug-and-play with the robotics equipment you already have in place. Solutions to difficult automation challenges in industries like food and beverage, advanced manufacturing and eCommerce and logistics can be rapidly developed and delivered.

Soft Robotics Development Kit

Soft Robotics knows your automation challenges require specific solutions, designed to your application. They also know the value of testing and validating your application with a grasping solution in your own environment, using the equipment you already have. That’s why they designed the Soft Robotics Development Kit.

With the SRDK 2.0, users can quickly prototype and test an infinite number of gripper configurations across multiple applications. Once your custom tool is created with the SRDK 2.0, Soft Robotics’ engineers can work with you to transform your prototype into your production tooling. The SRDK 2.0 can then be used to build another tool, and another, and another — solving every last one of your grasping challenges.
