July 3, 2019 – Bimba has added to its angular and parallel gripper portfolio with the new Bimba Pneumatic Gripper System (BPGS).
The BPGS offers a cam-activated, high gripping force solution for handling large and heavy objects in the most demanding environments.
Key features of the BPGS include gripping forces up to 450 lbs at 80 psi, rapid actuation time with a 0.05 second close, 0.09 second open at 425 cycles per minute, interchangeable pads for maximum material application flexibility, and a compact size to fit into tight work envelopes in a variety of applications.
The BPGS is comprised of a hardened steel chassis, which enables it to withstand hard impacts for maximum component longevity. The gripper will lock in a closed position for safety and is repairable by using a single wrench.
Users can configure the BPGS to meet specific application needs due to the vast array of jaws and pads available, including angular, regular, chisel, flange and shovel.
The BPGS is ideal for a wide variety of industries including automotive, sheet metal fabrication, thermoforming and more.
