Cleanroom Gripper for Small to Medium Part Handling
SCHUNK Inc. Posted 11/15/2016
The EGS from SCHUNK is perfect for the gripping of small to medium sized workpieces with flexible force and high speed in clean environments such as assembly, testing, laboratory and the pharmaceutical industry.
It is digitally activated by binary signals for easy start up and rapid integration into existing facilities and is extremely fast to achieve the maximum number of cycles per minute. The EGS is very sturdy, making it almost wear-free while also supplying high gripping forces for every cycle.
The EGS has autonomous gripping and swiveling, adjustable gripping force, and freely adjustable angle of rotation. It is energy efficient due to the use of an electric power train, and is very simple to use with no programming costs.
