Schunk's inexpensive MPC gripper designed for small components.
SCHUNK released its entry-level, pneumatically controlled SCHUNK MPC gripper for small components. The gripper is available in six sizes between 16 N and 270 N, with maximum jaw strokes between 2.5mm and 15mm. The smallest size in the series weighs 50g but can handle components weighing up to 80g. The largest size can handle parts up to 1.3kg. The repeat accuracy amounts to 0.02mm. For applications with more demanding cycle times, precision and service life requirements, SCHUNK also offers its MPG-plus gripper for small components or the mechatronic SCHUNK EGP.
