Both the version without monitoring and the version with sensor of grippers series 100 now work without a gap. As a result, even very flat or soft, malleable sprues starting with a thickness of about 1 mm can be securely gripped and reliably detected. With wide-opening jaws, the grippers are also well-suited for gripping large sprues. A dual-action variant is available for applications with short cycle times. It allows the opening and closing of the grippers to be controlled separately.
The properties of the new gap-free sprue grippers:
> Minimal closing gap: Secure gripping and reliable detection of even very thin sprues and tabs starting from about 1 mm thick
> Large jaw opening: Suitable for gripping large sprues
> Dual-action variant: For applications with short cycle times
