Mechatronic Gripper for Small Part Handling [New Products]

May 15, 2014

SCHUNK’s EGP electric small part gripper comes in a smaller size, weighs 110 g, and has a stroke of 3 mm per finger. The gripping force can be adjusted on 2 stages and its maximum gripping force amounts to 40 N. The gripper can handle workpieces of up to 200 g. The maintenance-free servo motors are brushless, and are equipped with cross roller guidance. This makes it suitable for pick & place applications. The gripper is based on the platform of the pneumatic MPG-plus small part gripper. Users can transfer the sensor system of the MPG-plus onto the EGP and existing systems can be quickly changed from pneumatics to electronics. Actuation is done analogous to the MPG-plus digitally directly, or via a sensor distributor. The MPG-plus and the EGP can be screwed on and through laterally and bottom-sided, increasing flexibility.
