This gripper series works in industrial and automation handling tasks where two and three-finger grippers won't work, such as cylindrical workpieces palletized in a grid. In addition, clamping two different sets of fingers allow the gripper to be used as a parallel gripper for clamping different parts. It comes in four sizes, grips at 580N (130 lbf) - 7,100N (1,600 lbf), and has strokes ranging from 6-25 mm per finger. It uses the same serrated jaw and wedge hook system featured in the company's two and three-finger gripper line. The company also provides inductive proximity sensor mounting with fully adjustable targets and integrated mounting of magnetic switches. Schunk Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-619
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
