The new SCHUNK PGN-plus-P and PGN-plus-E grippers offer an improvement on proven technology. The three new features of the new pneumatic SCHUNK PGN-plus-P distinguishes by: improved multi-tooth guidance, permanent lubrication with permanent lubrication pockets, and maximum force for higher workpiece weights.
The new SCHUNK PGN-plus-P and PGN-plus-E grippers are the result of more than 30 years of SCHUNK competence. They are based on an ingenious innovation strategy, which continuously expands proven basic components with highly up-to-date features. In 2000, SCHUNK acknowledged that the T-slot guidance that had been in use until then with force/ moment absorption needed to be improved. This was the moment SCHUNK multi-tooth guidance was born, which makes the SCHUNK PGN-plus-P universal gripper to the world’s best gripper.
The generated forces and torques must be shouldered by two guideways. In the process, considerable load peaks can arise, which can lead to premature wear and loss in precision.
The patented SCHUNK multi-tooth guidance redefines precision and durability in the SCHUNK PGN-plus universal gripper. Forces and torques are distributed to the guiding areas of several prism guides arranged in parallel. Therefore, the guides have a higher bearing capacity and ensure considerably better stability.
The tried and tested guidance technology has been made even better! With the NEW SCHUNK multi-tooth guidance , the distance between the load bearing surfaces has been considerably increased.
The result: Higher moment loads can be accomodated and longer gripper fingers can be used.
