Angular gripper

The PWG-plus angular gripper features a double-oval piston drive; a one-piece, high-strength aluminum housing; and a practically wear-free lever mechanism. Extensive accessories are available, including inductive sensors and magnetic switches.

The angular gripper is equipped with a connecting pattern identical to that of the PGN-plus universal gripper, which lets it work with compensation units, valves, or quick-change jaw systems.

The gripper is available in three sizes for workpiece weights between 0.5 and 7.3 kg, gripping moments between 3.5 and 143 Nm, a stroke per finger of 15°, and a travel tension angle per jaw of at least 3°.
