Do you need a solution to move objects varying in shape or size? Firestone AirPicker™ and AirGripper™ end effectors offer a wide range of advantages over traditional pick and place devices. By simply controlling the amount of pressure within the bladder, Firestone end-effectors can handle delicate objects with the soft touch of rubber and air. Each of our AirPicker and AirGripper products can work with a wide range of diameters and work piece weights-offering a low cost, durable solution for your pick and place application. Firestone offers a wide range of configurations and sizes of end-effectors to meet your needs or contact us and we can develop a product specific to your application.

The AirPicker end-effector is inserted into a product while deflated, then inflates outwardly to “hold onto” the product’s interior walls.
