The grippers and gripping technology from Festo provide solutions for a wide variety of handling applications worldwide.
Mechanical grippers are moved by a drive on the inside and convert the drive motion into a gripping motion of the gripper jaws via a transmission ratio. This movement of the gripper jaws is referred to as a stroke. Depending on the stroke and gripping force, workpieces of different sizes can be gripped.
Mechanical grippers can be controlled both pneumatically and electrically. Grippers with a long stroke are offered by Festo in both pneumatic and electric versions. Mechanical grippers also vary in terms of the number of gripper jaws. There are pneumatic grippers with two gripper jaws in parallel, radial and angle gripper design. There are also pneumatic grippers with three gripper jaws.
