Special Gripper for Bearings
Task and Process
Special grippers are used at various points of industrial production systems if very heavy or relatively large workpieces need to be moved securely and precisely. As the conventional grippers available on the market are often incapable of meeting the requirements reliably, FGB supplies individual systems that are used as robot-supported or operator-controlled solutions. These range from solutions with positive or force-fit clamping systems through to specially adapted vacuum grippers.
This example shows a special gripper for lifting and moving cylindrical parts that are clamped on the inside and then lifted with a crane. The load can be controlled with both hands thanks to the clamping and lifting control panel integrated into the gripper. This means it is no longer necessary to concentrate on two separate equipment parts. This is a huge improvement in terms of operating ease and safety.
