Tiny gripper accomplishes 3mm stroke in 0.03s

Tiny gripper accomplishes 3mm stroke in 0.03s

The SCHUNK EGP 25-speed mechatronic gripper for small components is the smallest electric gripper with integrated electronics on the market. Even more convincing, the Schunk EGP also has the fastest stroke to closing time ratio.

With a maximum stroke of 3mm, it only takes 0.03 seconds for its fingers to close. This offers optimal pre-requisites for minimal cycle times. The tiny, power dense gripper weighs just 100g and has a gripping force of 7N. It is suitable for rapid handling of workpieces up to 35g in friction-fit clamping.

Provided with brushless and therefore wear and maintenance-free servomotors as well as a powerful junction roller guide, the EGP guarantees a high level of efficiency that makes the gripper a dynamic and high-performance expert for demanding pick & place applications. As it is based on the platform of the tried and tested pneumatic SCHUNK MPG-plus gripper for small components, it comes with a bundle of additional advantages.

In many cases, users can transfer the sensor systems used in the SCHUNK MPG-plus to the SCHUNK EGP-Speed and easily convert existing systems from pneumatic to electrical operation. Control of the SCHUNK MPG-plus can be analog, digital direct or via a sensor distributor.

In order to increase the dynamics and the energy efficiency of higher-level systems, the gripper housing consists of a high-performance aluminum. In addition, the design is rigorous in eliminating superfluous materials. The electronics are built into the interior to minimise space requirements. The pick & place expert fulfills protection class IP30 and fits seamlessly in the program for modular high performance assembly from SCHUNK.
