Modular gripper systems

Friday, 02 March, 2012 | Supplied by: Romheld Automation Pty Ltd

Modular gripper systems from SAS Automation comprise extruded alloy profiles in seven sizes which are secured by a standard range of connectors and clamps to provide the basic gripper frame. To this frame a selection of mountings is available to secure grippers, vacuum cups, sprue pliers and sensors etc.

Users can order specific components to build up a gripper or alternatively select from a range of standard gripper kits which comprise everything needed to build a gripper. Both design and build times are reduced significantly and no special tools or equipment is necessary.

A key benefit of the modular gripper system using standard parts is that the components can be re-used when new or redesigned workpieces are introduced. This means that grippers can be quickly rebuilt and costs are significantly reduced over the lifetime of the systems.

The system also includes a low-cost, quick-change chuck which can be fitted to any robot for efficient tool changes.
