Mini-parallel grippers - Techno Inc.

The MGP800 Series mini-parallel gripper with flat guide is designed for use in smaller electronic or medical applications, as well as assembly and multiple pick-and-place applications. The grippers come in eight sizes ranging from 12 × 10 × 20 mm to 48 × 38 × 77 mm. A hardened-steel flat guide ensures maximum force and moment resistance, high-precision and play-free guides. The grippers have up to 400-N grip force and a 1 to 12-mm stroke/jaw range. Magnetic sensors can be mounted to sense the jaw position for positive feedback. Manifolding through the bottom mounting surface eliminates the need for air fittings and allows the grippers to be mounted in a close array.
