Aerosol Cans

Small openings, large bottle volume and large parts of the gripper surface uncovered, aerosol cans are challenging for vacuum grippers. The gripper needs to be properly designed to not require an expensive power source, and high quality is crucial as every valve and suction hole needs to function fully to not cause malfunction of the entire gripper. A UniGripper is always the right choice for this task, which our track record of successful aerosol can installations witnesses.
