The HNH Series pneumatic grippers can grip objects weighing up to 2.5 lb. The grippers are available for angular and parallel operation; in double- or single-acting types; in four bore sizes: 3/8, 5/8, 3/4, and 1 inch. Maximum repeatability is 180 cycles/min. Grippers come with a piston magnet, ready to use with LED Hall-effect sensor switches. No internal lubrication is required, and the grippers can be mounted axially from the rear, or from two different sides.
