Schunk’s Co-act EGL-C certified gripping unit saves effort for safety assessment of applications.
SCHUNK introduced a Co-act EGL-C line of electric 2-finger parallel grippers, certified for collaborative operations with an actuation via 24V. The gripper is used for gripping and moving of medium-sized workpieces in case of flexible forces in collaborative operations in areas of assembly, electronics, and machine tool loading. It ensures safe gripping for workpiece weighting up to 2.25kg and is a pre-assembled unit with a robot interface. The integrated status display offers visibility of the application state at the operator’s eye level.
