New SCHUNK PGN-Plus Grippers

October 22, 2018

50% longer fingers, 50% higher gripping force

Schunk PGN GrippersThe PGN-plus gripper’s improved multi-tooth guidance enables the use of even longer gripper fingers for the same gripper size due to higher maximum moments, without overloading the guidance. Gripping with optimized interfering contours during handling tasks in confined spaces, is thereby made even easier. Permanent lubricant pockets ensure a continuous grease supply.

PGN-plus-E Gripper are the first simple electric gripper with multi-tooth guidance, digital actuation, and 24 V drive makes the changeover from pneumatic to electric components particularly easy.  These electric grippers utilize a brushless DC servomotor for almost wear-free use and a long service life. Control via digital I/O provides easy commissioning and rapid integration into existing systems. Four-step adjustable gripping force means simple adaption to sensitive workpieces.
