SCHUNK has expanded its compact class, the 2-Finger-Parallel Gripper type JGP and the 3-Finger-Centric Gripper type JGZ with the sizes 200, 240, and 300 now. All the modules are equipped with a powerful pneumatic oval or round piston drive and together with the compact dimensions, an excellent power density is achieved. The integrated jaw guidances in a rigid T-slot ensure a precise and fail-safe handling to the operator. Therefore the grippers are suitable for many standard tasks in industrial automation and offer all essential functions at an extremely attractive price. Due to the compact design, the JGP and JGZ can be also used where only limited space is available and disturbing edges must be avoided.

By using standard inductive proximity switches or magnetic T-slot switches from SCHUNK, the grippers can be easily and reliably controlled. Moreover, they can be additionally equipped with accessories of the premium products type PGN-plus and PZN-plus. Force-measuring jaws, analog and magnetic positioning sensors, jaw blanks and much more increases the manifold options.
