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.
