Nov. 9, 2015 – Schunk says its PGN-plus Permanent gripper is equipped with an oval piston drive, “ensuring high forces in confined spaces.”
The contour of the multi-tooth guidance is equipped with grease pockets, which promotes continuous and more even distribution of lubricant, making it “practically maintenance-free,” adds the company, which increases the life span of the gripper. According to Schunk, many industries will benefit from this gripper: machine/system loading in the metal cutting industry, in foundries, assembly applications in the automotive and electrical industry, and to delicate handling tasks in the medical and pharmaceutical industry. The PGN-plus Permanent is available in the unit sizes 50 to 125. An expansion of the existing PGN-plus series is planned, says the company.
