Schunk pneumatic grippers are ideally suited to robot and automated handling systems. With 2, 3 and 4 finger versions available in parallel, angular and concentric styles, there is a gripper to suit virtually any workpiece confirguration.
All Schunk pneumatic grippers incorporate precision guideways for high force/load capacities. The range includes micro-grippers for handling the smallest of parts, universal and long stroke grippers through to heavy duty units capable if holding a complete car engine block. Each gipper type is generally available in a selection of strokes and gripping forces to assist in sizing correctly for the application. Integrated position monitoring is available for each gripper type and many models can be supplied with a built-in mechanical grip force safety device in case of power failure. Further options include gripper finger blanks, sealed units, dust covers for harsh environments and flexible position monitoring systems (FPS). FPS monitors up to five (5) freely programmable stroke positions or can be used as a measuring system. To assist the design engineer, each gripper type is supported by full techincal data including dimensions, maximum admissible forces and moments, plus gripping force diagrams. CAD data is available for download directly from the Schunk website. The Schunk range of pneumatic grippers can be matched to compatible rotary, swivel and linear units where additional degrees of freedom are required from the gripper/automation system. These system modules have pass throughs for pneumatics and electrics where necessary.
