Parallel Gripper

SCHUNK Inc. (Morrisville, NC) has expanded its EGN series of servo electric two-finger parallel grippers to include sizes 80 and 160 in addition to the existing size 100. The new sizes have a stroke per finger of 8 and 16 millimeters, respectively.

altThe grippers can be adjusted and controlled for gripping force, speed, position, and acceleration. They are designed for high payloads and have enough power reserves to handle heavy components with gripping forces of up to 1000 N. The ability to pre-position the gripper fingers enables short closing times and high cycle rates.

The EGN’s external controller, the MCS, enables easy programming, pre-configuration and implementation. With the MCS controller, command libraries can be created for use with other modules. The integrated Bluetooth interface also makes it possible to modify the behavior of the controlled components from a central location, which provides high flexibility in automation processes.
