SCHUNK Gripper School

Created for those interested in automating  processes.

A great place to gain some basic knowledge, but more importantly to learn what questions to ask, and what factors you need to consider to make the best decisions for your application.

Adhesion Technology

A video designed to showcase the technology behind the new SCHUNK ADHESO gripper.

Based on the principle of Van der Waals forces, ADHESO handles sensitive parts, grips without leaving a residue, and can be used in a wide variety of applications. 

You will have the opportunity to see some of these applications in action during this presentation. 

FLEXIBLE GRIPPING SOLUTIONS

Manufacturers are automating more tasks than ever before. The introduction of cobots has driven some of this acceleration by allowing easy programming and immediate use. 

SCHUNK knows that your end-of-arm tooling options should be just as flexible and easy to use. This Gripper School video takes a deeper look at flexible automation solutions, with a special focus on Flex Grip Tools. 

hOW TO CALCULATE MOTOR TORQUE

An important principle of motion control is knowing how to calculate motor torque by hand. It can be a very useful skills for those in automation world. 

This video walks you through the principle of motor torque and motion control and leaves you with an equation that you can keep handy for your application. 

A BASIC GUIDE TO AUTOMATION

This is your starting point for automation and gripping technology.

You will know the general overview of the types of gripping options available, how to determine grip force, the considerations needed for lightweight, fragile parts, dual end effectors, compliance devices, and more. 

All concepts are illustrated with application images for better understanding. 

HOW DOES MAGNETIC GRIPPING WORK?

How do magnets work? What are the typical magnetic grippers? How are magnets used in automation? 

These questions and more will all be answered in this Gripper School episode. 

If you’re wondering whether or not magnetic gripping could be an option for your project, then this one’s for you. 

grip force & finger design

Take a deeper dive into finger design and how it affects grip force.

You will learn how to determine grip force calculations based on your part and applications requirements. 

Don’t miss the grip force demonstration at the end, which shows how the material make up of finger inserts affects the coefficient of friction.
