Compact grippers - Schunk

The JGP two-finger parallel gripper and the JGZ three-finger centric gripper now come in 200, 240, and 300. All compact modules are equipped with a powerful pneumatic oval piston drive. The jaws are guided by a rigid T‑slot for precise and fail-safe handling.

The grippers are easily and reliably controlled using standard inductive proximity switches or magnetic C-slot switches. Additional options include force-measuring jaws, analog and magnetic positioning sensors, and jaw blanks.
