Centric grippers with multitooth guidance

Centric grippers with multitooth guidance
The PZB-plus from Schunk Intec is a newly designed series of 3-finger centric grippers with a special feature that is a central bore designed as a fitting. This central bore feature is equipped with female threads for customer-specific add-ons and can be used to supply material or as an ejector.

However, the new PZB-plus can also be used to monitor the handling or assembly process with a camera system or to pick up workpieces and centre them using the fitting during the gripping process. There are also threads integrated on the upper face of the gripper in addition to the threads on the cover plate, to facilitate mounting customer-specific add-ons.

The exciting new PZB-plus is available in two different stroke length versions, whereby the smaller stroke results in approximately double gripping force. The six sizes from 64 to 200mm are fitted with a multitooth guide, as is the case in the premium series PGN-plus and PZN-plus. Therefore, compared with the PZB series, the PZB-plus can pick up 100 percent higher torques in directions at right angles to the gripping motion. This makes it possible to use smaller grippers than before, which allows the system to work more economically.
