SCHUNK's newest 2-Finger Angular Gripper Type LMG 64 is made for the food-handling industry, and is the first manufacturer to offer a gripper in hygienic design as a standard product. Its stainless-steel housing resists corrosion and is easy to clean, with sealed mechanics and food industry standard-compliant lubricants. It has an operating pressure of between 4.5 to 6.5 bar, with a gripping force of 520N, and a 20-180-degree range on the fingers' opening angle. The grippers have a built-in spring to keep hold even with a loss of air pressure, and proximity switches in the housing can monitor the end position. The LMG can be built with customized fingers.
