Superior operating performance and reduced operating costs

Superior operating performance and reduced operating costs

For many years, the SCHUNK PGN-plus universal gripper has been considered a benchmark for gripping modules. Now with the new PGN-plus Permanent, SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems is raising the bar.

Its unique permanent lubrication provides a faster and more even distribution of the lubricant, even with short strokes. The complete contour of the patented multi-tooth guidance is equipped with grease pockets, which ensures a continuous supply of lubricant. This principle of the minimal quantity lubrication increases the already great life span of the SCHUNK best sellers.

"SCHUNK PGN-plus Permanent is a robust and perennial gripper, which reduces the operating costs, and offers a better performance as our current flagship PGN-plus," said Dr. Markus Klaiber, CTO at SCHUNK. "It ensures an excellent repeat accuracy of 0.01mm, and ensures the implementation of particularly efficient systems." It is equipped with an oval piston drive as its predecessor ensuring high forces in confined spaces.

The SCHUNK PGN-plus Permanent seamlessly integrates into the PGN-plus family. Nearly the whole range of possible automatic applications can be process-reliably controlled with the universal gripper - from machine/ system loading in the metal cutting industry, and in foundries to assembly applications in the automotive and electrical industry, up to delicate handling tasks in the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

The PGN-plus family has been successfully used in applications with high temperatures, pollutions, and aggressive media, as well as in clean rooms and explosive environments. On request, the modules are available with spring lock for mechanical gripping force maintenance, combined with compensation units for compensating angle errors, with force intensifier, or as a special precision version.

Moreover, a broad sensor program comprising of inductive proximity switches, magnetic switches and position sensors is available. Instead of many isolated applications, users reduce their internal coordination efforts by using the universal modular gripping system.
