MHM Magnetic Gripper Kit

MHM Kits

The UR+ Certified MHM Magnetic Gripper Kit’s easy Plug + Play integration is a solution for transferring ferromagnetic workpieces that are of uneven surface, porous, or susceptible to damage when traditional methods of vacuum systems or mechanical grippers are not viable solutions.

From Startups to experienced integrators, SMC has the global support to equip your UR e-series cobots with a solution complete with URCap plugin to reduce design and programming. The kit includes the magnet gripper, adapter plates, solenoid valve, solid state switches, tubing, fittings, and URCap plugin.

How Does It Work?

Simply mount the adapter plate & both MHM Magnetic Gripper and valve assemblies to the robot, connect the cable to the UR port, and connect your air supply line. And for those who don’t want to reinvent the wheel, users can download the URCap plug in onto the robot’s teach pad for quick start up.

The magnetic gripper is designed with a strong magnet attached to the piston. When a workpiece is ready to be picked up, a signal is sent to the valve to supply air to extend the piston. As the piston actuates, the magnet extends and increases the magnetic force near the workpiece and allows it to be picked up. The bumper thickness allows the holding force to be adjusted. When the workpiece has been transferred to its desired location, send the signal to the valve to retract the piston, which thereby reduces the magnetic force and releases the workpiece.

Features & Benefits

  • Design prevents deformation of workpieces and accidental adsorption of a second workpiece.
  • High holding force up to 80N *based on workpieces with thickness of 0.6mm
  • Holding force can be easily adjusted with varying bumper thicknesses offered as spare parts
  • Residual holding force of 0.3N or less helps reduce workpiece release time to promote overall production efficiencies
  • Included is SMC’s flagship SY series 5 port solenoid valve with improved performance and reliability
  • URCap plugin included to ease integration and programming
  • Available worldwide and backed with SMC’s global presence & support
