The MWPG 20 Miniature Changing Parallel Gripper of SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems, is opening up new possibilities of application in the optical engineering and in electronic production. The worldwide first quick-change miniature parallel gripper with standardized DIN interface’s OD, is less than 20 mm. An optical monitoring, a large through-hole, and a large range of accessories make this miniature gripper an all-rounder.
This miniature gripper of the innovative family-owned company is made of stainless steel and weighs 26 g. In order to avoid frictional loss due to mechanical deflection, two horizontally positioned piston areas provide the jaw drive. The jaw motion will be mechanically synchronized via a special ring system. On request, if one of the two fingers should be fixed for example, a forced coupling will not be necessary. Free of scope, smoothly running cylinder pins provide for the jaw guidance. Therefore gripping forces up to 5 N and an adjustable stroke of up to 1 mm per finger are possible.
