Freely programmable electric grippers

IAI's product range includes a wide selection of freely programmable gripping solutions for pick-and-place automation systems. They offer three functions in one: gripping, measuring and testing.

IAI electric grippers enable precise positioning and gripping of workpieces, which is especially important in applications with delicate parts or tight tolerances. Optimised handling and excellent repeatability when gripping and holding workpieces reduce the risk of damage or misgripping.

Compared to pneumatic grippers, electric grippers operate much more quietly and consume less energy. They are also better suited to holding workpieces.

Solenoid gripper for small parts assembly

The electric two-point magnet gripper is available either with outer diameter grip or inner diameter grip in two sizes with a maximum gripping force of 10 N or 20 N. Both variants grip centrically and have a stroke of 4 mm with dead weights of 160 g and 270 g respectively. Opening and closing takes only 0.03 seconds.

As a connection, these small electric grippers only need one cable for the power supply and the sensor signals, which makes installation in complex systems particularly simple and safe. They are used wherever filigree small parts need to be picked up and moved safely and in an energy-saving manner.

RCD mini gripper with servo drive
RCD-GRSN Mini 2-Finger Gripper

The 2-finger gripper has a gripping force of 10 N with an overall height of only 22 mm. The maximum opening and closing speed is 67 mm/sec. And this with a position repeatability of +/- 0.05 mm.

In conjunction with the associated IAI controller, the user can freely program up to 512 positions. Gripping forces and accelerations are of particular importance here. This makes it possible to grip a wide variety of parts and materials without any problems.

This microgripper is frequently used in micro and precision engineering as well as by users in electronics and medical technology.




Long-stroke gripper for gripping large workpieces

The so-called long-stroke grippers are suitable for gripping large workpieces. The latest version is based on the slider type actuators of the RCP6 series with two slides moving in opposite directions. These grippers are also available with angled motor and optionally with integrated controller. They are equipped with a battery-free absolute encoder as standard.

With this gripper, maximum gripping widths of up to 1,200 mm can be realised with stroke lengths between 180 mm and 260 mm. Depending on the spindle pitch, this new long-stroke gripper can grip with forces between 155 N and a maximum of 400 N with a repeat accuracy of +/- 0.01 mm.
