End Effectors grip porous sheet materials with needles.

Operated with 90 psi shop air, SCH20 and SCH23 robotic, pneumatic end effectors utilize 2 sets of needles that extend from gripper at 120° angle to pick up porous sheet materials. Dual sets protrude in opposite directions for firm hold on material, while reducing bunching and pinching under gripper. Depth of stroke of needles can be mechanically adjusted from 0-6 mm. Able to handle up to 9...
