Sealed grippers are compact and powerful

Paul Boughton
Schunk is extending its series of sealed grippers, making the DPG-plus two-finger-parallel gripper available in sizes 240 and 300. Actuation via an oval piston and multi-tooth guidance provide powerful, precise and fail-safe handling of the payload. Users therefore benefit from high machine availability and, consequently, increased manufacturing and assembly efficiency.
The DPG-plus is suitable for loading and unloading grinding, turning and milling machines, and also for applications in paint shops, powder processing and underwater. The robust gripper is protected to IP67. Since the mounting pattern is identical, it can be exchanged with Schunk's proven series PGN-plus and PGB grippers.
