Electric Grippers for Pick-and-Place Automation Systems

For grasping, measuring and testing even sensitive workpieces

Freely Programmable Electric Grippers

RCS2-GR8 Gripper

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

Compared to pneumatic grippers, electric grippers do not require air lines, operate much quieter and save energy and maintenance. They are also better suited to holding workpieces.
 

Sectors and areas of application

Electric grippers are often used in the automotive, pharmaceutical, electronics, food and consumer goods industries. They are used to transfer parts to or from a conveyor belt, work station or machine, for example, during machine loading, part placement, loading and unloading, and packaging or palletising.

A second application is the alignment of parts. Here, the gripper must position the part correctly in preparation for the next work step.

Long-stroke gripper with battery-less absolute encoder

The new long-stroke gripper for large workpieces is based on the existing RCP6-series cylinders and is designed with two oppositely moving slides. An option with an angled motor is also supplied if the workspace available makes this necessary. Like all products in this series, of course this long-stroke gripper has a battery-free absolute encoder.

This gripper can achieve stroke lengths of between 180 mm and 260 mm and maximum grab widths of up to 1,200 mm with maximum extension of the gripper jaws of up to 400 mm. Depending on spindle pitch, this new long-stroke gripper can achieve forces of between 155 N to maximum 400 N at a position repeatability of +/- 0.01 mm.

All models in this new range are also optionally fitted with an integrated controller, which greatly simplifies installation. This new long stroke gripper is used above all for handling large plastic parts and for handling large parts in other industries, where correspondingly large grippers are required.

GRS solenoid gripper - small, affordable and easy to operate

The electric two-point lifting 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 high gripping force

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

The user can program up to 512 positions in conjunction with the corresponding IAI controller. Above all, the gripping forces and accelerations are of particular importance here. This makes it easy to grasp different parts and materials.

This micro gripper is mainly used in micro and precision engineering, but is also very useful for users in electronics and medical technology.
