Conventional industrial robots

The success story started in the early 1960s with the area of conventional industrial robots. Since then, the technology has evolved rapidly. Robots became simpler, more versatile and more reliable in installation, programming and maintenance. Zimmer Group launched the world's first mass-produced gripper in 1980 and has played a key role in the area of end-of-arm tools ever since.
