Abstract : The device is designed for connection to the end of a movable arm (10) for the robotized handling of products (6), which include those with irregularities or a layer of ice on their surface, which are subjected to forces in a direction that is perpendicular to and a direction that is tangential to the grip surface. The aim of the device is to guarantee firm retention of the product in both directions and to guarantee a short response time of the whole. It has securing means that comprise at least one vacuum suction element (4) capable of withstanding the perpendicular forces when it is attached to the product and at least one perforation element (5) that acts in collaboration with said suction elements (4) in order to withstand the tangential forces when penetrating said product, the suction effects and the retention effects produced by said perforation elements (5) being added together in order to provide grip stability.
