What is industrial handling technology?

Industrial Handling technology technology refers to the field of engineering and automation focused on design, analysis, implementation and application of systems used for the handling and processing of materials, workpieces or tools. This includes a variety of devices and machines, such as robotic arms, conveyors, sorting systems and other mechanisms used in production, logistics and many other industrial applications.

GRIP specializes in automatic and manual tool changers (EOAT) standardized feed-throughs and pneumatic grippers such as parallel grippers for robots and cobots.

Increase your productivity with intelligent industrial handling technology from GRIP

The applications for industrial handling technology are diverse and range from the automotive industry, where it is used for tasks such as welding, painting or assembly, to the food industry, where it is used for sorting, packaging and transporting products. GRIP industrial handling technology integrates the most advanced technologies.

The main functions of handling technology in robotics are:

  • Cost efficiency and increased productivity: In the long term, industrial handling technology reduces costs and increases productivity by shortening throughput times and by ensuring consistent high product quality.
  • Quality control: Some robots are used specifically for inspection and quality control tasks to ensure compliance with quality standards.
  • Automation of industrial handling processes: Robots can automate manual handling tasks. This increases the efficiency and speed of production/assembly processes, and reduces errors.
  • Increase precision and repeatability: Robots are able to perform tasks with high precision and consistent quality. This is particularly important in areas such as electronics assembly, welding and precision manufacturing.
  • Improve worker safety: Industrial handling technology can be utilized to perform dangerous, repetitive or ergonomically awkward tasks, reducing the risk of injury to employees.
