Servocontrolled Grippers

Aug. 4, 2005
PT-AP70 servoactuated grippers are designed to make components such as glass, foam, or sand molds easy to manage.

A dc servomotor is coupled to a gear-driven, ball-bearing spindle. Fingers are guided with low-friction linear bearings for controllable actuation. These grippers have 70 mm of total stroke with the capability to produce 200 N (45 lbf) of grip force. Guaranteed system repeatability is less than ±0.05 mm with an overall weight of 0.9 K (2.0 lb). CAN-bus, RS-232, or Profibus-DP communication options are available. All controls are fully integrated in the unit, eliminating the need for external controller cards.
