Mechanical grippers

Parallel gripper

Festo offers mechanical parallel grippers in various designs. They are suitable for internal and external gripping. Parallel standard grippers are suitable for handling a wide variety of small parts in a clean environment. To absorb high forces, Festo offers robust gripper systems with loadable T-slot guidance of the gripper jaws. Tight grippers are suitable for handling in heavily soiled and demanding environments. The precise parallel gripper has a convincing backlash-free rolling bearing of the gripper jaws. The electric long-stroke gripper offers an alternative to pneumatics.

Three-point gripper

Three-point grippers make it possible to retain a workpiece centrally. Festo offers these products in various designs. Standard three-point grippers are suitable for the universal handling of small parts in a clean environment. To absorb high forces, Festo offers robust three-finger gripper systems with loadable T-slot guidance for internal and external gripping. Tight three-point grippers are suitable for handling in heavily soiled and demanding environments.

Angled gripper

Festo angle grippers are standardly available as small parts grippers and micro grippers. The jaws of the angle gripper open 20° per jaw. The opening angle can eliminate the need to approach an object from the side. The defined opening angle makes it possible to save cycle times. Interfering contours can be bypassed.

Radial gripper

Festo radial grippers are available in two options. The standard radial gripper is available as a small parts gripper for clean ambient conditions. A robust version with a sealing air connection allows higher forces to be absorbed. The jaws of the radial gripper open 90° per jaw. The wide opening angle can eliminate the need to approach an object from the side. The opening angle makes it possible to save cycle times.

Swivel/gripper unit

The swivel/gripper unit is a compact combination of parallel gripper and swivel unit. Both functions can be controlled and moved individually and independently of each other. The swivel/gripper unit is available in three different sizes. The swivel angle is adjustable from 0° to 210° with a maximum gripping force of 192 newtons.

Bellows gripper

The Festo bellows gripper is a gentle and safe internal gripper. Increasing the bellows diameter clamps the payload to the inner contour. The gripper is suitable for gripping and transporting parts with circular openings, such as glasses, cups or bottles. Two different bellows materials are available: EPDM is suitable for higher loads, silicone for higher temperatures.
