Schunk launches MHP miniature high-speed parallel gripper

Schunk Intec Ltdvisit website


Schunk's new miniature high-speed parallel gripper (MHP) is the two-finger counterpart to the centric gripper SMG. The new gripper with electro-mechanic drive achieves short cycle times and is also equipped with end position dampening and integrated electronics for optimised control. The long tool life is assured by maintenance of the end positions without power, which avoids a continuous power overload.

For fast applications, the maintenance-free MHP is exceptional. The angular position of the gripper head is unlimited and is continuously adjustable to individual gripping situations. Moreover, the roller-bearing gripper jaws, with their thread holes offer various attachment possibilities for universal gripper fingers. For simple and universal adjustment in applications and installations, a connection extension is available as an additional accessory.
