Compact carbon gripper

Grippers made from strong, lightweight carbon fiber extend the scope for customer-specific automation solutions. The comparatively modest additional costs can open up huge potential for enhancing production efficiency. We therefore recommend that each case should be considered in isolation.

The main components made from carbon fiber are the basic body and the supporting elements. The two hinged insertion and removal modules are nested in one another. This makes the gripper extremely compact, while also providing more space for functional elements. The insertion module includes a stripper movement for transferring the inserts into the mold.

What you should know

  • Weight saving: The lightweight construction with carbon fiber enables the use of a smaller robotic system with smaller load weights
  • Cycle time reduction: The gripper is so compact in design that molds do not have to open as widely
  • Lower investment: A smaller mold opening stroke enables the use of smaller injection molding machines
