SCHUNK’s compact 2-Finger PWG-plus features rugged aluminum housing and near wear-free T-bar drive.
SCHUNK introduced its PWG-plus, a 2-finger gripper that features an oval piston drive, aluminum housing and T-bar drive. Depending on the application, it can also be equipped with an ID/OD spring safety device or other accessories, including inductive proximity sensors and magnetic sensors. The PWG-plus gripper jaws and gripper mounting holes are capable of mounting directly to certain SCHUNK compensation units, attachment valves, and quick-change jaw systems. The PWG-plus gripper’s advantages include the design of outrigger workpiece supports due to threaded connections and centering sleeve options. The gripper is available in a variety of sizes and gripping torques.
