The Gripper for a Variety of Gripping Diameters

Centric grippers with swivel fingers are an ideal solution if parts with various gripper diameters need to be alternately handled. Instead of exchanging top jaws or complete grippers every time, the fingers simply swivel into another position. With the PZH-SF 125, SCHUNK extends the program range of these versatile actuators with smaller sizes. At a diameter of 125 mm, the slim, long-stroke...
