Schunk EGP 25 speed mechatronic gripper for small part handling

Saturday January 20, 2018
Jan. 20, 2018 - Schunk describes its EGP mechatronic gripper as an electric small part gripper with the most compact performance on the market.

Schunk has expanded the EGP series with a smaller size (25) which weighs 110 g and has a stroke of 3 mm per finger. Furthermore, the company says it has developed an optional speed version of the EGP 25. By reducing the internal gear ratio, the speed version exchanges grip force for speed, giving the EGP 25 speed version the ability to open or close in 0.03 seconds. With a grip force of 13 N, it is capable of handling parts up to 0.05 kg. According to Schunk, users can transfer the sensor systems used in the MPG-plus to the EGP-Speed, and convert existing systems from pneumatic to electrical operation. In order to increase the dynamics and the energy efficiency of higher-level systems, the gripper housing consists of special high-performance aluminum, it adds.
