Building works of art with FIPA vacuum gripper

The “Association for Robots in Architecture”, a community of interest from Vienna, is dedicated to the creative use of industrial robots for the novel production of works of art and innovative architecture. In workshops the design freedom when working with items made of foam board is enabled with designers, architects and artists.

The vacuum grippers from FIPA have been found to be ideal for this because they securely hold the resulting item made of porous foam board during hot wire cutting.

This example shows how items made of porous material are manufactured.
