Mini-Parallel Gripper

Oct. 26, 2006
The MGP800 Series mini-parallel gripper with flat guide is designed for use in smaller electronic, packaging, assembly, and multiple pick-andplace applications.

The grippers come in five sizes ranging from 12 X 10 X 20 mm up to 30 X 23 X 46 mm. A hardened-steel flat guide ensures maximum force and moment resistance, highprecision and play-free guides. The grippers have up to a 29-lb grip force and a range of 1 to 6-mm stroke/jaw. For positive feedback, magnetic sensors can mount to sense jaw position.
