New GRZ Grippers
The gripping solutions of the ASS Robot-Hand-Kit (EOAT) are extended by three new gripper designs: a heat-resistant gripper, a gripper with "parrot beaks" and a gripper for soft components.
Gripper with "Parrot Beaks"
New in the product segment are grippers with so-called "parrot beaks". One jaw of this gripper has a contour which looks like a parrot beak, the opposite jaw has a sprue monitor. This special contour jaw makes it easier for the gripper to take out half-round or large sprues.
The grippers are available as GRZ 20-20 PS,CS,I and in GRZ 14 size as GRZ 14 PS,CS,I.
Heat-Resistant Gripper GRZ 10-12 HT
At K Show ASS presents the new heat-resistant gripper of the 10-12 series: GRZ 10-12 HT. This new special gripper is heat-resistant during long-term exposure to air temperature up to 150 degrees Celsius. This gripper offers reliable gripping and holding in a long-term operation under heat in the infrared oven used for thermically-formed materials, e.g. FRP organic sheeting. As a standard feature, the GRZ 10-12 HT has serrated jaws and a closing force of 28 Newton. Adapted to individual customer requirements, the heat-resistant gripper jaws can also be equipped with different jaw geometries.
Gripper for Soft Components
The gripper GRZ 10-08 C WK grippers was optimized especially for secure sprue monitoring of soft components.
More new gripper components will be shown at K Show 2016:
When handling of non-rigid parts, such as textiles, thermoplastic carbon fiber composites or other tissues and light elements needle grippers are required for handling. Especially in automotive lightweight construction needle grippers are important for handling fiber composites. Therefor we have enlarged our gripper components for FRP handling.
The main focus is on gripper parts that can be implemented in the injection moulding industry in many ways and can especially be used to handle flexible materials and fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP). The new gripper parts fit perfectly in the robot end-of-arm tooling erector kit (EOAT) and can be combined with existing components.
We are looking forward to seeing you at booth 10/J22 in hall 10.
