Powerful pneumatic universal gripper From SCHUNK

An inside look at the Schunk PGL-plus-P
See how the rack-and-pinion kinematics ensure powerful, concentric opening and closing of the gripper. Available in 5 sizes, the stroke per jaw amounts to 10-25mm at a gripping force between 220 N to 1,300 N.
The secure, certified gripping force maintenance, GripGuard holds the gripped workpiece safely and ensures a permanent gripping force of minimum 80% in case of pressure drop. It also ensures no dangerous, spontaneous jaw movements can occur in the event of a pressure drop. As the base jaws do not move uncontrollably with a pressure interruption, there is no risk of injury with this gripper. The risk assessment is simplified since gripping force maintenance is already certified as a safety function.
The unique integrated sensor system delivers precise, process-reliable monitoring of the complete gripper stroke via IO-link. The large jaw stroke enables flexible handing of a wide range of parts.
Advanced gripping technology from an industry leader
The Schunk PGL-plus-P grippers feature food-compliant lubrication as standard. This makes these grippers easy to incorporate into medical technology, lab automation, pharmaceutical and the food industry. (See details on the PGL-plus-P Product download.)
