Small hands - but a firm grip

29 January 2008

New compact gripper ranges from FS Engineering feature high quality parallel and angular double acting, self centring and light weight units suitable for accurate small parts pick and place applications. Parallel grippers type PPM come in four sizes with gripping forces from 50 to 185N. The devices have a lever system that provides smooth and accurate motion for the steel jaws in their roller bearing guides.

With a body height of only 45 mm for the smallest unit and weighing just 75g, the super compact parallel grippers type PPC include similar features as the PPM but in addition are fully enclosed preventing dirt from entering the gripper mechanism. This model is particularly suitable for use in clean assembly areas for example for electronic components handling or fitted to injection moulding robots to place precision inserts and removing plastic components.

The angular grippers type PAP are also available in four sizes with a robust steel lever system providing jaw angles from -10º to + 30º and a torque range from 0.48 to 2 Nm.

Gripper bodies are made in hard anodized aluminium and include multiple mounting holes and slots for optional position sensors.
