The DPP series of parallel grippers offers excellent parallelism and accuracy between the gripper mounting and jaw surfaces. The series integrates DIRECTCONNECT‚â„¢ technology, allowing the grippers to be easily mounted to other modular automation products without the use of adaptor plates.
DPP parallel grippers use ‚â€œDual-V‚â€ roller bearings to provide low-friction and high repeatability in holding delicate parts. The design also allows the use of longer gripper finger lengths when compared to other grippers within the same size and weight ranges.
Shields repel contaminants from penetrating the roller bearings. The grippers feature a standard purge/scavenge port, making them suitable for clean room environments. Grippers in the series can accommodate up to four magneto-resistive sensors, for multi-position sensing.
Through a non-synchronous motion option, the grippers offer independent jaw motion for picking and placing at a point other than the gripper‚â€™s center. An optional double acting spring assist increases force and can simplify operation to a single action to open the clamp, with the spring establishing a default-closed position.
