SCHUNK EGH

Ready-to-work in 30 minutes

The SCHUNK EGH has a flexible gripper with a long, adjustable stroke for simple automation with cobots. 

Flexible gripping and moving of small to medium-sized workpieces in the areas of handling, assembly, and electronics.

Benefits

  • Long and freely programmable stroke
  • Plug & Work
  • Integrated status display
  • Control via IO-Link
  • Gripping movement with parallel kinematics
  • Easily accessible assembly quick-release fastener
  • Optionally attachable flexible fingers

Functions & Highlights

The diagrams show the functionality as well as various product features and options. The product features and directly applicable information contained in the articles can be found in the technical data, drawings, etc.

Sectional Diagram

The multi-stage gear transmission is driven by a brushless servomotor. The base jaws of the gripper are driven by three parallel output pinions, which have integrated gear racks for this purpose. The jaws are therefore driven by the rack-and-pinion principle, which converts the rotary movement of the servomotor and the gear into the linear movement of the base jaws. 

  1. Gripper housing: made from high quality plastic
  2. LED strip light: for an application-specific status display
  3. ISO flange: for direct adaptation to the robot
  4. Drive unit: consisting of gear and servomotor
  5. Integrated electronics: With IO-Link interface and LED status display
  6. Looking mechanism: for simple and quick assembly on the robot
  7. Base jaw with linear guide: for adaptation of gripper fingers

Status display via LED light band

The SCHUNK Co-act gripper EGH has an integrated LED light strip that can indicate the gripper’s operating status. The light band can be illuminated in three different colors. They can be defined on an application-specific basis and controlled individually via digital signals.

  1. Illuminated green light band
  2. Illuminated yellow light band
  3. Illuminated red light band

Starter kit for simple Plug & Work

A starter kit is available for quick and easy installation of the SCHUNK Co-act gripper EGH. This contains all the necessary components to successfully mount the gripper onto the robot and to put it into operation. The starter kit comprises the following materials:

  1. Flexible gripper EGHG
  2. Rigid attachment finger
  3. Flexible attachment finger
  4. finger inserts
  5. USB stick with URCap plug-in
  6. Tool
  7. Velcro tapes for fastening the cable to the robot
  8. Adapter plate
  9. IO-Link master with connection cable

Long, freely programmable stroke with parallel finger movement

The long stroke of the SCHUNK gripper EGH can cover an enormous range of workpieces. The gripper fingers can therefore be positioned flexibly over the entire stroke. The robust parallel movement of the fingers ensures constant gripping force at a position over the entire stroke. Height compensation for the robot is not required.

Easy & quick assembly

The design of the SCHUNK gripper EGH enables the gripper to be attached to the robot quickly and easily. First the included adapter plate is attached to the robot flange using the supplied fastening material. Subsequently, due to the assembly quick-release fastener, the gripper can be attached easily to the adapter plate with the enclosed hexagon socket wrench. Finally, you just need to establish the electric connection.

  2. Hexagon socket wrench
  3. Mounting material
  4. Adapter plate
  5. Robot flange

Flexible fingers for maximum variability

The SCHUNK Co-act gripper EGH can be equipped with flexible fingers. These are also included in the starter kit. With two adjustable finger joints, the gripping width is easy to adjust according to individual requirements. This expands the gripper’s range of application, and exchanging fingers or the entire gripper is no longer necessary.
