Dual Action Gripper facilitates O-ring assembly.

Providing up to 1,450 N force, 6-finger GS Series picks up O-rings, expands them to slip over shaft, then ejects them into groove machined into shaft. Operating from 58-145 psi air pressure, 2 pistons that are pneumatically driven independently of each other actuate gripper motions. Standard pin sizes handle O-rings ranging from 4-60 mm diameter. Optional sensing can be accomplished with 2...
