Active Fail Safe Accessory
Available for model AL-2200. The Active Fail Safe Accessory will assure that parts are not dropped should the pneumatic pressure fail. An encompassing jaw system or jaws with compliance must be used with this accessory. Some movement of the jaws will occur as pressure fails.

Adapter Plates
Plates used to connect RAD’s Harsh Environment Parallel Gripper to the robot are available to help you easily install your new gripper.

Collision Sensors
RAD’s Collision Sensors stop the robot and protect your valuable tooling in the event of a collision.

Robotic Tool Changers
Automatic Robotic Tool Changers allow you to maximize the productivity of your robot by enabling it to perform multiple operations without human intervention.

NOTE: Pneumatic grippers are used on robots, robotic arms, linear actuators, pick & place machines, and other automated equipment.
