SCHUNK rolled out its LEG multi axis gripper, with fixed center jaws, fingers made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic and a pneumatic ejector. The gripper, which pre-adjusts its position as the robot approaches, palletizes between 15 and 60 units per minute, at a clamping accuracy of less than 0.1 mm. Due to the universal servo-electric drive concept, the gripper fingers can be separately controlled, and articles can be laid down separately. Moreover, the gauge for bore holes between the fingers can be defined individually. The gripper weighs 60 kg without chuck jaws. Depending on the article and weight, solutions with minimum clearances between 3 and 10 millimeters are possible. Depending on the size, the LEG multi axis gripper clamps up to 100 kg force-fit, and up to 150 kg form-fit.
