Festo’s DHPL long-stroke gripper delivers high load and torque in a light, compact body.
Festo introduced its DHPL, a series of long-stroke grippers that offers ≤ 0.03mm repetition accuracy due to its three guide rods and a rack-and-pinion design. The line’s force ratings range from 40N to 750N. Jaw stroke ranges from 20mm to 200mm. Positioning pin holes ensure DHPL mounts in the precise position of the gripper it replaces. Jaw interfaces allow for fingers and brackets to be added, which assure the perfect gripping of the part. Pneumatic end-position cushioning is standard and can be adjusted for optimal performance according to the moving mass and speed.
