Schunk bags the winner of the Hermes Award 2017

 On her tour of the exhibition, Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the SCHUNK booth, while the Managing Partner & CEO, Henrik A Schunk, presented smart gripping modules that enable direct human/robot collaboration (HRC).

The company received the award for the SCHUNK JL1 Co-act Gripper, the world’s first intelligent gripping module for human/robot collaboration (HRC) that directly interacts and communicates with humans.

The HRC gripper is developed with the guiding principle of Industry 4.0 in mind. Complex sensor systems and artificial decentralized intelligence, which are fully integrated in the gripper, allow it to constantly gather information about the component being gripped and about the environment, to process this information and to execute appropriate responses based on the specific situation.
