Grippers (Tools)

Grippers serve as robot hands in automated motion devices.

Grippers, offered in 2- and 3-finger variations, simulate motion of human hands in parts handling applications. Mounted to any motion device or used as hands on robots, products operate on plant air and feature double acting drive motion for gripping parts externally or internally. Inlet pressure may be reduced to handle fragile parts. Fingers can be fabricated to conform to special shapes, and...
