Grip and Rotate Modules Perform Two Operations in One Compact Package
"With up to 4 mm stroke per jaw, 350 N of grip force and 0.5 Nm of torque for rotation, the DGP packs a large force in a compact design," said Costas Charalambous, sales manager. "This in turn allows engineers increased flexibility with their application designs that will save both time and space."
The DGP404 series has separate pneumatic connections for grip and rotate cylinders, so the grip function can operate independently from the rotate function. Offered in six different models for inside and outside gripping, each unit can be set for either 90 or 180 degrees of rotation and has magnetic position sensor slots built into the housing. These models are also available with mechanical gripping-force retention.
