Universal Robots + Certified
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 programing. 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

2 Finger Grippers
2 finger grippers are the most popular style of gripper. SMC has many variations in 2 finger grippers to fit a variety of applications and work pieces.
3 Finger Grippers
3 finger grippers are great for round work pieces. The 3 fingers movement is synchronized by either a wedge cam or a rotary cam mechanism.
4 Finger Grippers
4 finger grippers are optimal for postioning square work pieces as well as picking up round objects. Its wedge cam design minimizes its overall size while retaining a high holding force making it suitable for end-of-arm (end effector) or space constrained pick and place applications.
Auto Hand Change System
The Auto Hand Changing (AHC) system, coupled with a tool adaptor, can be quickly linked and interchanged with either a standard or high precision pneumatic gripper. It is very versatile and can be integrated into a flexible manufacturing system (FMS) making the AHC an effective 2-in-1 gripper component. The MA2 load bearing unit has a max. transportable mass of 3 kg, with a built-in failsafe mechanism for drop prevention when there is loss of air pressure. Paired with the tool adaptor, it can link with two types of grippers.

The ZK2 series is an energy-saving generator with 90% reduced air consumption. It has a 50% increase in suction flow compared to other single stage SMC generators. With its compact size and light weight, it is easier to maintain. The ZK2 also has various mounting options to choose from.
SMC suction cups are designed in a range of 19 diameters from 2mm to 200mm for use in delicate or heavy applications. SMC vacuum cups are available to fit many unusual shapes and are constructed from a variety of premium materials such as Silicon, NBR, Urethane, Fluorine etc. Installation options can be specified on either spring loaded buffers or threaded stems. Special application cups are also available such as check valve, porous material, annulus area etc.
Suction Cup Adaptors
The ZP, ZP2 and ZP3 series lateral entry adapters offer a wide variety of cup diameters, materials and designs to suit multiple applications. The adapters are available with SMC's acclaimed built-in one-touch fittings. Buffer types are available with strokes up to 50mm, depending on the series.
Non-Contact Vacuum Pads
SMC's non-contact, cyclone and Bernoulli type grippers, series XT661 moves work pieces without leaving flaws or adsorption marks. Because no-contact is made with work pieces, the XT661 is ideal for transferring FPD glass substrates, solar cells, wafers, etc.
Vacuum pad and generator are integrated for space savings. The two-stage generator increases suction flow up to 50% and reduces air consumption up to 30%. Design features allow for daisy-chain piping and the mounting with lock plates makes for easier maintenance.
Vacuum Saving Valve
ZP2V is a vacuum saving valve that when multiple vacuum pads are operated by one vacuum generator, and some of them are not holding the work piece, the reduction of vacuum pressure is restricted and the work piece can remain held by the rest of pads. When the work pieces have different shapes, the control circuit can be simplified. There is no need for switching operation when changing work pieces.
