Since the finger position, closing speed, and gripping force are freely programmable within a maximum stroke of 48 mm per finger, diverse components with a weight of up to 3 kg can be handled in force-fit gripping. The fingers can be prepositioned to reduce cycle times. The control and power electronics of the product are integrated to save space. Via the CAN interface the gripper can be linked to a host controller. The product features USB connectivity for service purposes. A brushless servomotor ensures continuous and reliable operation with no maintenance required. To maintain the position in the event of a power outage, the gripper provides an electrically operated brake.

The mechatronic actuator fulfills industrial standards and the basic version is connected only by means of industrial connectors. The gripper is compatible with the world’s most extensive standardized line of modules for gripper systems from Schunk. The supplier is a German family-owned company. More than 2500 employees in eight factories and 30 directly owned subsidiaries and distribution partners in more than 50 countries ensure a world-wide availability and support.
