Techno-Sommer Automatic is excited to announce the newly expanded MGP800 Series Mini-Parallel Gripper with flat guide. Designed for use in smaller electronic or medical applications, as well as assembly and multiple pick-and-place applications, these mini- grippers now come in eight different sizes ranging from 12 mm x 10 mm x 20 mm (L x W x H) up to 48 mm x 38 mm x 77 mm. Every MGP800 gripper has the same capability to fit into tight spaces, grip, and pick up very small items in small places.
The MGP800 Series uses a hardened steel flat guide to ensure maximum force and moment resistance, high-precision and play-free guides. The grippers have up to 400 N (90 lbf) grip force and a range of 1 mm to 12 mm stroke per jaw. Magnetic sensors can be mounted to sense the jaw position allowing for positive feedback. Adding to the compact nature of the grippers is the possibility of manifolding through the bottom mounting surface, eliminating the need for air fittings and allowing the grippers to be mounted in a close array.
