Festo offer HGPLE electric grippers. The long stroke of the HGPLE electric grippers enables it to be used with a number of different sized work pieces. With the tactile gripping option, the HGPLE electric gripper is suitable for soft or highly sensitive work pieces. Alternatively, the HGPLE electric gripper can grip large and heavy work pieces reliably.
The HGPLE electric gripper with an integrated motor and a gear unit provides variable positioning and speed control, giving users controlled and secure gripping. The unit is suitable for applications where no compressed air is available.
Precise control over gripper positioning and speed is ensured by the Festo motor controller, which comes with programming and commissioning software.
Machine cycle times can be reduced by programming a standby position for the freely positionable gripper fingers. Internal or external gripping is possible without changing grippers, making the device flexible.
The HGPLE electric gripper is optimised for use in harsh environments due to its sturdy T-slot design, and has a service life of 10 million strokes. As the HGPLE electric gripper is a part of the Festo multi-axis modular system, it has mounting dimensions and identical interfaces similar to Festo pneumatic grippers.
