Transforming CNC Manufacturing

VersaBuilt was founded by machinists with a lofty but simple goal: automate everything. Not just the high-volume parts, all of the parts. The result of that effort is VersaBuilt’s patented MultiGrip Automation Workholding System.

Today, our customers have automated thousands of unique parts using the MultiGrip Automation Workholding System. Find out how the MultiGrip Automation Workholding System can transform your CNC manufacturing

MultiGrip CNC Workholding System

MultiGrip is a better way to machine parts. At it's core, the MultiGrip CNC Workholding System is a pneumatic vise with quick-change vise jaws. A MultiGrip Vise and MultiGrip Jaws will reduce your change over time to less than a minute. Pneumatic vise actuation improves quality by delivering consistent clamping forces. When you're ready to automate, add a robot with a MultiGrip Gripper and enjoy the benefits CNC automation with a minimum of effort.

MultiGrip Robot Grippers

MultiGrip Robot Grippers were designed with a single purpose in mind: to make a better gripper for high-mix CNC machine tending. Robots equipped with MultiGrip require less change-over time, are easier to program, work with more part geometries and are more capable than any other robot gripper for CNC machine tending.

CNC Automation Starter Kits for Universal Robots

VersaBuilt's pre-engineered CNC automation kits for Universal Robots come with everything needed to build your own CNC automation system in less than a day. All components are designed and integrated to work together. VersaBuilt's URCap for Universal Robots simplifies programming allowing you to automate more production in less time with greater reliability.

Robot to CNC Integration

VersaBuilt's Robot2CNC control system allows your robot to communicate and control your CNC machine. Traditional IO hand-shake implementations are limited in capability, difficult to program and prone to costly errors during part change-over. VersaBuilt's Robot2CNC control system allows the robot to select the CNC program, cycle start the CNC and inform the robot when the CNC program is complete or generates an error.

CNC Automation Accessories

VersaBuilt has the tools you need to make your automation fast, reliable and efficient. Robot carts, CNC door openers, CNC part settling tools and part blow-off to improve automation productivity and reliability.

Testimonials


The VBX‑160 allows us to run lights-out. This is helping our company cope with growing pains. The available workforce in our area is very small and mostly unskilled in the abilities that we need. The VBX‑160 allows us to produce more quality parts with our existing personnel. A real plus for our company. The VersaBuilt personnel have been excellent to work with. They provide great attention to detail and are very interested in our continued growth and success.

Rick Peterson, President and Owner - Gem Chain Bar


The VersaBuilt Robotics team has been great to work with excellent customer service and very responsive to integrating the VBX‑160 into our manufacturing line. Their system works as intended and has increased our utilization substantially. We expect to continue our business relationship going forward.

Steve Fitz, General Manager - 2A Armament

We purchased a VBX‑160 in December. After setting up the VBX‑160 the system has performed extremely well and is helping us increase the efficiency in our production. It‘s easy to use and has a small footprint - both of which were critical requirements for us. The support from VersaBuilt has also been outstanding.

Stefán Örn Kristjánsson, Manufacturing Engineering Manager - Össur


We found VersaBuilt Robotics after hours of researching for an Automated Tend Solution. The VBX-160 system has eliminated set-up and changeovers for all our products machined in this cell. This truly is a S.M.E.D. solution. The VBX-160 allows us to continue running after hours and in the first year has improved overall utilization by 30%-40%. VersaBuilt Robotics MultiGrip™ system gives us total control over our machined products eliminating the need and costs from an external integrator. Implementation was less than 3 days! VersaBuilt Robotics' customer service being nothing short of exemplary during the process. We’re proud to have the first VBX-160 in Michigan.
