PHD has announced the release of the series GRA gripper. The compact, precision gripper, available in four sizes, can support large moment capacities and long tooling lengths. Its slim design allows ample space for stacking grippers in confined areas.The factory-set jaw guide system helps minimize jaw free-play and reduces jaw deflection when gripping or moving loads. True parallel jaw motion simplifies jaw tooling and is suitable for centering parts of various sizes.
The H7-tolerance dowel pinholes help ensure the alignment of tooling and gripper mounting. Internal speed control is standard, with no external speed control required. The units are supplied switch-ready for integration of optional magnetic position-sensing switches.
