Soft Robotics Releases Configurable Gripper Kit.Denrie Caila Perez posted on February 28, 2019 |. When working with collaborative robotics, it’s essential to use end effectors that are as collaborative, safe and flexible as the robots themselves.

Soft Robotics has recently introduced the Soft Robotics Development Kit 2.0, a new plug-and-play custom automation solution kit for assembly lines that allows users to build, prototype, and test different configurations.

Soft Robotics recently unveiled their new expanded and upgraded class of robot grippers, the Soft Robotics Development Kit 2.0.

While the SRDK 1.0 only had 5 four accordion actuator modules and the ability to create a gripper with two to five actuators, the new version now includes 6 four accordion actuator modules.

The SRDK 2.0 also comes with an upgraded Soft Robotics Control Unit.

Besides the SRDK 2.0, Soft Robotics also introduced three accessory kits that allows for even more expanded application use.
