SCHUNK Offers New Sealed DRG Two-Finger Radial Gripper
June 1, 2010—The new DRG Two-Finger Radial Gripper from SCHUNK is utilized for difficult handling tasks. The gripper is used in dirty working environments and suited for loading and unloading of wet machining centers, grinding machines, lathes or milling machines. Other applications are in painting plants, powder processing or underwater. The robust gripper by SCHUNK fulfills the IP67 protection requirements, which means that no materials from the working environment can get inside the unit. The sealed DRG gripper is an all-purpose unit and depending on the individual application, it can be ordered with a gripping force safety device or as a high-temperature version. The end position can be optionally monitored via inductive proximity switches or magnetic switches.
