Weiss Grippers

Weiss Robotics offers the first grippers with integrated gripper part recognition and monitoring.

  • Eliminates the usual external limit switches and makes handling processes much more flexible
  • Reduces waiting times during overtravel detection of the limit switches and thus accelerates your process
  • Integrated controller enables direct connection to the control level without additional ballasts
  • Two product lines: Integration Line and Performance Line

WEISS was founded in 2008 as a startup and is the leading specialist for mechatronic gripping systems today. As an family-managed company, Weiss develops innovative gripping solutions for demanding automation tasks at its headquarters in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

How does deployment work?

Graphical user interface for every robot – drag&bot

  • COMPONENT MANAGER – Here the user configures the connected hardware. The installation of the corresponding drivers takes place automatically in the background.

  • BUILDER – Applications can be created from predefined function blocks using drag and drop.

  • WIZARDS – Graphical operating and input aids: Users can adapt function blocks to the specific requirements of their application without expert knowledge.

  • RUN VIEW – The created applications are executed here. With one click you return to the Builder and can extend and optimize the application.


Use any hardware and combine it as you wish

drag&bot supports a variety of different robots, almost all grippers and part supply systems and the most common image processing systems and communication interfaces.

Save valuable time when integrating grippers, cameras or PLC systems. With minimal effort, your hardware is connected to drag&bot and you can get started right away.

Use the hardware that suits your application best!
