Eurofork's E-BOX GRIPPER Automated Warehouse Solution Leverages CoreTigo's IO-Link Wireless Technology to Enhance Adaptability and Performance

Eurofork, the Italian specialist in the production of automatic handling systems for warehouses, and
CoreTigo, the provider of industrial wireless automation solutions, enhance box handling systems with the EBox Gripper. The new system is a handling device solution for the storage and retrieval of cardboard and
plastic boxes within automated warehouses. Incorporating Eurofork’s domain expertise along with
CoreTigo’s industrial-grade wireless connectivity solutions, the E-Box Gripper is designed to have
impressively fast and reliable performance, enabling high non-stop warehouse operations even during
seasonal peaks.
Better. Faster. Smaller
Thanks to its compact design, E-BOX GRIPPER allows increased storage volumes within the automated
warehouse, enabling higher storage capacity for the same amount of space. The use of sensors and IoT
components makes it a “plug-in” solution that is quick and easy to install, maintain and, most importantly, can
collect data for predictive maintenance.

Using IO-Link Wireless based communication enabled Eurofork to control the conveying unit’s and boxholding grippers wirelessly with full flexibility, rather than having complex and malfunction-prone wired
connectivity. The motors controlling the grippers are connected via a TigoBridge IO-Link Wireless Bridge
device, which enables the simplest and most reliable wireless communication from the moving E-BOX
GRIPPER. The TigoBridges communicate over the air with the TigoMaster IO-Link Wireless Master which
also enables a seamless integration to the PLC and to enterprise applications such as WMS or ERP
systems. This setup is particularly suited for environments with densely packed warehouse shelving aisles,
where interference is a common challenge.
This Industry 4.0 design approach, empowers the E-BOX GRIPPER to offer a variety of benefits and
advantages:
• Operational Excellence: Overstocking reduction, increased efficiency, error reduction and enhanced
1/3
traceability.
• Industrial IOT Ready: Thanks to IO-Link and IO-Link Wireless, the system provides full control and bidirectional communication for control and monitoring (including predictive maintenance).
• Non-Stop: Power transmission embedded into the belt system ensures continuous operation of the
grippers, and wireless connectivity enables fewer cables, less wear and tear, and less maintenance.
• High Performance: Simultaneous handling of two boxes built into the system, additional expansions upon
request.
• Customizable & Scalable: Enable variable distances between tines (for boxes of different widths) and
operate with all Eurofork’s accessories (belt system, chain system, roller tracks, etc.).
• Adaptable & Flexible: Can be easily integrated on a variety of stacker crane and shuttle systems.
• Silent: Designed to minimize noise during handling operations.
"The integration of CoreTigo’s IO-Link Wireless technology into the E-BOX GRIPPER was simple and
straightforward”, says Giuseppe Testa, CCO of Euroforkat Eurofork”. “Having this flexibility with a wireless
solution enabled us to fulfill the needs of the market and provide the E-BOX Gripper which addresses key
industry challenges”.
“CoreTigo’s IO-Link Wireless solution is specially designed for control and monitoring on moving components
in harsh industrial environments, which made it the perfect solution for Eurofork’s E-BOX GRIPPER”, says
Matteo Orlandelli, Italy Country Director at CoreTigo. “We’ll be showcasing these and many other capabilities
at the upcoming SPS Italia 2024”.
CoreTigo will be showcasing this and additional industrial wireless automation solutions at SPS Italia 2024,
May 28-30, Parma, Italy, Hall 06 Stand E 71. To find out more, schedule a meeting, and get a free ticket,
