March 22, 2010
Techno-Sommer introduces eight designs for gripping/picking very small items in small places.

MGP800 Series Mini-Parallel Grippers are offered in eight sizes, from 12x10x20 mm (LxWxH) up to 48x38x77 mm.

Techno-Sommer Automatic has updated its MGP800 Series Mini-Parallel Gripper with a flat guide, for use in smaller electronic or medical applications, or assembly and multiple pick-and-place applications. The mini-grippers are offered in eight sizes ranging from 12x10x20 mm (LxWxH) up to 48x38x77 mm. Each one is capable of fitting into tight spaces, gripping, and picking up very small items in small places.

The MGP800 Series uses a hardened steel flat guide to ensure maximum force and moment resistance, high-precision and play-free guides. The grippers have up to 400 N (90 lbf) grip force and a range of 1 mm to 12 mm stroke per jaw. Magnetic sensors can be mounted to sense the jaw position allowing for positive feedback. Adding to the compact nature of the grippers is the possibility of manifolding through the bottom mounting surface, eliminating the need for air fittings and allowing the grippers to be mounted in a close array.
