Vention X Schunk

Manufacturers today expect fast design, simple implementation, and easy operation of automated robot cells. That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership with SCHUNK, a leading brand in gripping systems. With years of experience in handling and assembly automation, SCHUNK provides customers with industry-leading gripper systems that are precise, long-lasting, and robust.

With this new partnership, users can now add pneumatic or electric grippers to the end of robot arms (like those from Universal Robots) within MachineBuilder 3D, Vention’s free online CAD software. All SCHUNK grippers available on Vention are equipped with the ISO 50 flange for easy mounting onto collaborative robots.

This partnership also brings new capabilities to our Robot Reach Study feature. Within the CAD robot reach study environment, you can now connect grippers directly to the arm for a more accurate view of the full application, making it easy to assess your robot cell design in terms of robot type, gripper size and TCP, and custom Vention equipment.
