Pneumatic Gripper Can Be Customized to the Workpiece

Engineers at RÖHM, which has its U.S. headquarters in Lawrenceville, Ga., are taking advantage of new technologies to quickly customize their RRMP grippers so that they efficiently handle and move round, prismatic, or free-form packages or parts. They can also manipulate delicate and sensitive parts and are flexible enough in design to perform internal or external clamping. And although they are lightweight, they are durable enough to survive over 10 million gripping cycles without showing signs of wear or requiring maintenance.
The pneumatic grippers come in three sizes with strokes from 9 to 22 mm, clamping force from 25 to 80 N, and operate on six bar of air pressure.
