Achieving accurate and repeatable part-placement in assembly or machining applications require the highest levels of precision. This is where Precision Grippers play a critical role in optimizing the user’s operations. The key to achieving a very high degree of accuracy in part placement requires the use of precision grippers. Precision grippers have excellent parallelism between the gripper’s jaws and body, with zero side play that can compromise repeatability. Precision grippers are manufactured with high quality materials and tight machining tolerances resulting in exceptional repeatability for up to and beyond 5 million operating cycles, Additionally, all forms of grippers, whether parallel, angular, pneumatic or electric in design, must be sized properly in relation to part weight, air pressure and gripper finger length. Ideally the gripper should not be oversized or undersized, though an oversized gripper can improve safety in some applications.
