R&I Manufacturing - DURA-GRIP Part Placement Devices are designed to provide a low cost gripping unit for use on transfer mechanisms. These air operated units grip parts internally or externally offering the designer a wide latitude in finger tooling arrangements. Read more...More Product Announcements from R&I Manufacturing Co.
Angular motion grippers represent the lowest cost design. The air cylinder is an integral component of the overall gripper length. The piston actuator pushes the cam, or yoke, forward, rocking/pivoting the jaws open. Read more...More Product Announcements from ITT Compact Automation
Parallel motion grippers represent a highly versatile and flexible design. The integral pneumatic cylinder pushes the jaws open. The jaws slide along two hardened guide rods providing rigid, long lasting true parallel motion. Read more...More Product Announcements from ITT Compact Automation
The air actuated Parallel Grippers are self-centering, and allow a single finger design to handle a "Family of Parts", various sizes and or diameters. The fingers are fully guided through the entire stroke. The fingers are thru hardened and ground tool steel. They are actuated by a sleeve roller, running in a 45 degree groove. The sleeve shaft is double end supported. Read more...More Product Announcements from R&I Manufacturing Co.
Standard grippers are the first choice for cost-effective, lightweight and compact construction of handling and assembly systems. The parallel, three-point, radial and angle gripper series DHxS from Festo features optimized gripping force retention and overload protection as well as integrated sensor slots. It offers increased reliability in a range of sizes and stroke lengths. Read more...More Product Announcements from Festo Corporation
The PowerGripper is modelled on the complex kinematics of the bird's beak. In mechanical terms, this is known as Watt's linkage. In the PowerGripper project, the developers implemented this bionic principle using the DMSP-5 Fluidic Muscle from Festo and combined it with the production technique of metal laser sintering.
