Two New Miniature Grippers From Techno-Sommer Feature Failsafe Construction
New Hyde Park, New York -- Two new miniature grippers from Techno-Sommer Automatic are characterized by their slim design. By changing the pin linkage configuration, the gripper can be changed from pneumatic-closing and spring-opening to spring-closing and pneumatic-opening.
Because of the small size of these finger grippers, direct monitoring is not possible, and a control valve must be used instead. The gripper's jaws are made of steel and can be easily machined up to 10 mm. Additional air connections located on the back as well. These are factory-plugged. There is also a double-acting version of the GMI 6 gripper which has air connections for both opening and closing. The GM Series all have a total stroke wedge of 7º and a closing torques of 6 Ncm, 20 Ncm, and 40 Ncm. The basic dimensions are 11 mm x 63 mm on the smaller unit and 16 mm x 84 mm for the two larger ones.
