PGN-plus-P: The benchmark gripper from SCHUNK
February 22, 2021 // 1 minute read
“No matter which robot-supported automation solution we are planning and implementing for our customers, I always find what I need in SCHUNK’s PGN-plus-P portfolio.” – Project Manager for Mechanical Production
“Our customers expect premium quality not only from the overall solution we provide, but from every individual component that we implement. This is the reason we place our trust in the premium grippers of the PGN-plus-P series from SCHUNK.” – Application Engineer
“In the past, we used grippers that were not able to handle the requirements that we have for speed and reliability. Since changing to SCHUNK grippers we no longer have to think about the reliability of the gripper. It just works.” – COO and Co-Founder.
How does the PGN-plus-P family of grippers help manufacturers deliver the best products and solutions to their customers?
A key feature of the PGN-plus-P is its multi-tooth guidance, which enhances the T-slot guidance of conventional grippers. With this patented technology, guides have a higher bearing capacity and better stability. By optimizing the function of the gripper, more possibilities are available to the operator, including:
The PGN-plus-P is also maintenance-free, with a permanent supply of lubricant in the guidance system. It can be paired with a variety of accessories in the SCHUNK portfolio to customize your PGN-plus-P gripper to your specific application.
The technology of SCHUNK PGN-plus-P gripper has more to offer. With its powerful features, the PGN-plus-P is in a class of its own.
Profit from the benefits:
The SCHUNK gripper PGN-plus-P raises the bar even further for pneumatically actuated universal grippers. The optimized multi-tooth guidance with permanent lubrication sets a new benchmark on the market. At the same time, the PGN-plus-P benefits from the unique range of SCHUNK accessories for virtually the entire range of all conceivable automated applications
The improved multi-tooth guidance enables the use of even longer gripper fingers for the same gripper size due to higher maximum moments, without overloading the guidance. Gripping with optimized interfering contours during handling tasks in confined spaces, is thereby made even easier.
The lubricant pockets in the multi-tooth guidance ensure a continuous grease supply. The advantage is an even lubricant film that is created rapidly, even with short strokes.
For multi-tooth guidance with permanent lubrication, the supporting dimension between the six load-bearing shoulders was increased, thereby increasing the size of the guiding surfaces.
