Vacuum Area Gripper FXC for Handling of Doors with Various Dimensions

POSTED 05/06/2015

The gripper system can handle different workpieces without requiring changes to the gripper. Even doors with a frame width of only 80 mm are no problem for the gripper system. The foam grid serves as the sealing element between the gripper and the workpiece. This sealing foam compensates for gaps in the workpiece which could cause leaks. The integrated valves open and close individual vacuum points according to how the gripper is covered.
