FIPA has added customized insert grippers to its end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) line that are compact, customizable, and specifically designed for handling inserts in injection molded parts at high cycle times. The grippers are said to be said to be cost-effective for small or even single-piece runs. Vacuum- and air-powered versions are offered.

The grippers are tailored to the "precise geometric shape" of the material handled, and housing materials include a high-strength aluminum compound or a polyamide-based, high-performance plastic, which is safe for use with food products. They're said to be well-suited to high dynamic loads, and vacuum and pressure ports can be integrated into the grippers to minimize hose connection effort and space requirements.

The grippers are compatible with FIPA’s modular system, as well as similar third-party systems, and have quick-action couplings.
