With the iTENDO it was possible to combine the excellent features of the TENDO hydraulic expansion technology with the possibility of digital process monitoring. If one looks into the process starting from the place of metal cutting, the iTENDO is the first non-wear part, “closest-to-the-part,” and therefore it is predestined for signal acquisition. Digitalization is considered to be the greatest challenge in the manufacturing industry. However, it also offers chances for the companies in creating processes more precise, reliable, and faster. The precondition for this, is a maximum process stability achieved by intelligent solutions and components that could recognize unforeseeable instabilities, and could intervene in real time. The resulting effects are a minimization of rejects, a noticeable reduction of production times, as well as an important increase in quality and efficiency – even in the case of small batch sizes. With the new iTENDO – the first intelligent toolholder on the market – SCHUNK is setting a milestone when it comes to digitalization in the metal cutting industry. Due to the real-time capable data communication, SCHUNK offers for the first time an autonomous process optimization in the form of a toolholder.

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. 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.
The bionically inspired ADHESO gripper technology is based on the principle of adhesion and uses intermolecularly acting Van der Waals forces to handle various workpieces.
The advantages of ADHESO gripper technology are revolutionary: gripping without residue, sensitive gripping without mechanical force, and no external power supply.
SCHUNK’s application experts take advantage of these benefits and develop customer-specific adhesive grippers with ADHESO gripper technology. Due to the high variability of the adhesive structures, grippers with ADHESO technology can be directly tailored to the requirements of your application.
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. 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.
