Original Press Release:
Rapid Mechatronic Gripper for Small Part Handling
The EGP from SCHUNK has the most compact performance of any electric small part gripper on the market. SCHUNK has expanded the EGP series with the addition of the smaller size 25. The small, speedy gripper weighs 110 g and has a stroke of 3 mm per finger. The gripping force can be adjusted on 2 stages and its maximum gripping force is 40 N. The gripper can handle workpieces up to 200 g, making it as efficient as its pneumatic counterpart. Its closing time amounts to 0.09 s and it is the smallest representative of electric small part grippers with integrated electronics of its kind. The maintenance-free servo motors are brushless and equipped with efficient cross roller guidance.
The mechatronic gripper is based on the platform of the proven pneumatic MPG-plus small part gripper, offering many advantages. In most cases, the us-ers can transfer the sensor system of the MPG-plus onto the EGP and existing systems can be quickly changed from pneumatic to electronic. Actuation is done analogous to the MPG-plus digitally or by a sensor distributor. The MPG-plus and the EGP can be mounted from the side or the bottom, which increases the flexibility of the design. In order to increase dynamics and energy efficien-cy, the gripper housing is made of special high-performance aluminum. The EGP fits seamlessly into the SCHUNK program for modular high-performance assembly. It complies with protection class IP30 and is suitable for various ap-plications in the field of small part handling and assembly.
SCHUNK is the worldwide competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems. Totaling more than 60 years of experience, SCHUNK is a family owned operation and a global player in one. For more information, visit www.schunk.com
