Pneumatic grippers for sensitive and safe internal gripping.
Complete control unit for separating workpieces in the supply process.
Adapter kits and installation components for handling units with which handling kits can be established.
Festo grippers and gripping technology offer global solutions for a wide range of handling applications.
Mechanical grippers are moved inside via an actuator 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 stroke. Depending on the stroke and gripping force, workpieces of different sizes can be gripped.
Mechanical grippers can be controlled either pneumatically or electrically. Festo offers both pneumatic and electric grippers with long strokes. Mechanical grippers also differ with respect to the number of gripper jaws. There are pneumatic grippers with two gripper jaws in parallel, radial and angled gripper design. There are also pneumatic grippers with three gripper jaws.
Festo offers solutions for handling technology worldwide with its feed separators. The Festo feed separators facilitate the feeding process of workpieces.
The feed separator series are used when continuously arriving workpieces have to be separated (e.g. from a spiral conveyor or on an assembly line) and individually transferred to a downstream device. Depending on the workpiece to be separated, feed separators with one plunger or with two plungers can be used. The former can be used for general separation or as a pure stopper. The advantage of the feed separator series with two plungers is the mechanical synchronization of the two fingers and the associated reduction of actuation to a single valve. They are used on small workpieces.
The plungers each offer mounting options for individual attachments, allowing the product to be perfectly adapted to the separating task. The space-saving solution of the sensor concept is an additional advantage of the Festo feed separators: our proximity switches SME-8 and SMT-8 can be fitted as accessories directly into a sensor slot on the housing.
