The AG Series angular gripper utilizes a double acting piston with a dual pivot system. The piston has a single center pivot that drives each gripper jaw open and closed. The gripper jaws have an independent stationary pivot which each jaw arcs about. The ratio between the piston and jaw pivots has been optimized for maximum operating performance. The AG series angular gripper is a cartridge style design. The cartridge design utilizes a minimum number of components, seven major components in all. The cartridge design offers the greatest grip force to size ratio over other conventional designs.

The MPG5 Series gripper is designed for pick & place of small pieces. The cutting edge design of the MPG5 allow for manifold mounting a series of MPG5’s in line without the concerns of space for fittings or airlines. Another unique feature of the MPG5 is the dual-purpose purge port that is part of every gripper. This feature facilitates use of the MPG5 in some clean room applications and very dirty environments..
Shielded design for long service life.
High grip force to weight ratio.
Top porting allows units to be manifold mounted eliminating air fittings. Side and Top porting standard.
Purge port will evacuate any contaminates from inside for a clean room environment. When pressurized the purge will keep debris from entering unit in dirty environments.
Jaws are aluminum bronze alloy and T-Slot style to prevent jaw breakage.
Synchronized Motion: Two opposing pistons share a common bore. Each piston transfers force and motion (undiminished) independently to each slide. The motion of both pistons is guided through a single piece mechanism which provides self centering motion of each slide, repeatable within 0.002 inches. Gripping force and synchro-nization are totally independent of each other. This results in minimum wear and maximum performance life.
Compliant Motion: The compliant gripper utilizes the same construction as described above, except the single piece mechanism providing synchronized slide motion is removed. The slides are now independent of each other, allowing the gripper to comply to the part's position. Once the part has been gripped, its exact position is held. Position drift does not occur. Compliant grippers offer an economical solution, potentially eliminating the use of a compliant wrist.
Body: One piece construction for maximum rigidity. Hardcoat Teflon ®impregnated inside and out. compact, lightweight, high grip force to size ratio.
Slides: Slides are 100% engaged in body throughout the entire stroke length. Electroless Nickel plated. No external arms, reduced pinch points, OSHA
Synchronize: The synchronizing mechanism is housed internally, protected from external contamination. Hardened tool steel.
Position Sensing: Position sensor mounting track and magnetic pistons, standard on all models. Easy access, total adjustability, factory or field installed.
The PG Series is low profile with true parallel motion that is generated by a pinion mechanism powered by a double acting piston.
Body: Hardcoat Anodized, Teflon impregnated inside & out. 2 different strokes same size low profile body.
Jaws: Aluminum bronze alloy and T-Slot style to prevent jaw breakage and offers superior load bearing capabilities.
Sensing: Hall effect sensing is available to sense open & closed position.
The TJ Series grippers provide high grip force in a compact design. Shielded design make the TJ series ideal for machine loading and unloading. Compact design, to grip force ratio are ideal for confined work areas.
Jaws are T-Slot bearing supported to prevent jaw breakage and offer superior load bearing performance.
Felxible mounting, thru hole for SHCS, tapped from opposite side.
Dowel holes for locating.
Hardcoated aluminum body.
Sensing tracks for Hall effect switches.
Optional stripper plate (TJ30 series).
The PG6J80 Series 6 finger gripper design utilizes a dual acting piston to open and close gripper jaws. All six jaws are synchronized for accurate positioning. The included ejectors operate independent of the gripper jaws, providing a convenient method to strip parts from the jaws. An example of this could be, expanding an o-ring and pushing it on to the desired part.
Body: Hardcoat, anodized, Teflon impregnated aluminum, lightweight durable
Jaws: T-slot design for superior load bearing support, six jaws in synchronized parallel motion.
Ejectors: Independent motion from jaws. Single acting, air pressure to extend, spring return. All ejectors extend and retract together.
Stroke Adjustment: Easy access stroke adjustment screw provides precise controllability of jaw travel. Locking jam nut secures adjusted position.
The WG Series, (double guided wedge parallel grippers), achieves synchronous motion with a double acting piston attached via the piston shaft to a double sided wedge. The double sided angles of the wedge convert vertical motion to synchronous horizontal motion of the jaws. The Double Guided Wedge Parallel Grippers Unit can be slightly pressurized via the purge port to prevent debris or coolant from entering. Vacuum can also be applied.
Body: Hardcoat, anodized, Teflon impregnated aluminum, lightweight durable. Ultra high gripping force to weight ratio.
Jaws: Jaws machined from S7 tool steel to prevent jaw breakage.
Switches: Proximity switches are available to monitor open and closed position of the jaws.
Side Ports: Additional side mounting holes and side air ports for optional mounting and porting.
Lubrication: Units are permanently lubricated for non-lube air operation, this allowing for compliance with OSHA regulations.
The E Series offers quality solutions for robotic gripping applications. The "EPG" (two jaw) and "ETG" (three jaw) parallel gripper lines utilize a double acting piston and rocker arm design. The piston has a radial groove to which the rocker arm engages. As the piston moves up or down, the rocker arms pivot moving the gripper jaw open or closed. All jaw motions are synchronous.
