AGS now enables interactive configuration in the field of gripper assembly. Reproducible gripper assembly is an important component in a modern production environment for an automated and equally efficient production. AGS, the specialist in demolding automation, now offers a novelty for user: The interactive configuration of gripper systems, which is called CAD Grip 2.0. Operating the program is easy and intuitive. Previous knowledge, for example of a CAD system, is not necessary. CAD Grip is functioning fully independent without usage of any other CAD Software.
The user is able, to configure the gripper offline. Software Installation is not necessary, which usually means, especially for larger companies, no need for support by the IT-Service. CAD Grip comes on a USB-Stick. The application is started by a self-executed file. There for an individual installation on your company computer is not necessary. “Operating is a piece of cake.” The user can import the plastic part for an appropriate gripping and arranging. After that, it´s possible to choose gripper parts out of the modular gripper system by “Drag and Drop” and arrange them systematically. At this point the software supports the user, as the components have attachment points to allow a very simple allocation. Once the connection point has been chosen, all the matching parts out of the AGS assortment are shown as a recommendation for construction. The user receives valuable tips for constructive alternative solutions as he proceeds. The virtual construction is performed controlled and optimized. The attachment of the matching components takes place automatically. This avoids mistakes in the concept phase already. When the configuration is completed, the component list can be exported to the AGS Customer Portal and can be ready for instantly placing your order. The project can be saved in the appropriate format for his CAD-Software, as there is Inventor, Autocad, Solidworks, Proengineer or Catia, only to name a few. With this software, AGS also provides you with important details. For example, the weight will be automatically added up and the total weight of the Gripper tool can be shown.
