New Product: Parallel Gripper

The JGP parallel gripper, available in Sizes 64 to 160, is for use in clean to slightly dirty environments and where space is limited.

The gripper’s oval pistons, wedge-hook kinematics, and T-slot guidance let the grippers hit 56.2 to 537.3-lbf gripping forces at 0.6 to 7.3 lb. Stroke ranges are 0.24 to 0.63 in./finger. Recommended workpiece weights are 2.8 to 18.1 lb in standard cases.

Available accessories include pressure-maintenance valves, finger blanks, fittings, and quick-change jaw system.
