Schunk eGrip web tool for creating 3D printed gripper jaws

Schunk eGrip is described as the world's first fully automatic design tool for creating additively manufactured gripper jaws. Schunk eGrip needs only minimal data for the fully automatic calculation of the optimal 3D contour, pricing and delivery schedule. Schunk says its licence-free, browser-based web tool reduces the design and ordering time for customised gripper jaws to only 15 minutes.

3D CAD files for the workpiece or components can be uploaded in STEP or STL format using the intelligent software that is available around the clock and does not require a separate CAD program. The next process is to enter additional specific information such as the weight, installation position of the gripper, and finger length. In a few seconds, the software generates a detailed offer containing the 3D contour, the delivery time and the price. Schunk eGrip can quickly calculate even complex geometries. Users can either order the jaws immediately or save the offer and retrieve it later. In addition, the outer contour of the generated assemblies that consists of the gripper, top jaws and workpiece can be downloaded in STL format for immediate use in the system design.

The affordable additively manufactured Schunk top jaws can be quickly manufactured and are made of lightweight, wear-resistant polyamide 12, in either white or black. For use in pharmaceutical and medical applications, top jaws are also available in an FDA-approved grade of polyamide 12. Since polyamide is resistant to chemicals and suitable for use with foods, it can also be reliably used in connection with aggressive media. Due to their low weight, the top jaws are suitable for minimising cycle times and power consumption of the corresponding systems. They can also be used with smaller robots or handling systems. In combination with the Schunk BSWS quick-change jaw system, grippers can be re-equipped for a new spectrum of parts within seconds. In the first phase, Schunk eGrip top jaws are available for Schunk universal grippers PGN-plus 40 to 125 and for Schunk small component grippers MPG-plus 20 to 64.
