The Schunk EGB with IO-link is a compact mechatronic 24 V gripper for small components that allows flexible processes during fast-paced pick & place.

The gripper, based on the tried-and-tested Schunk EGP, offers a high speed and high gripping force. In the version with IO-Link, the electric gripper satisfies the IO-Link Class B Standard suitable for increased power consumption, and can be directly connected with an IO-Link Class B Master. Its gripper fingers can be freely positioned within every cycle, allowing the highest level of flexibility.

The gripping force can be adapted to the respective workpiece using software settings in four stages, so handling scenarios with deformation-sensitive parts can also be achieved. Within the permissible finger length, both the gripping force and the gripping speed remain virtually constant over the entire stroke. The position of the gripper fingers are detectable using the integrated measuring system over the entire stroke, and no external sensors are required for monitoring.

An integrated diagnosis tool permanently monitors the voltage, current, temperature, and condition of the gripper, and transmits errors automatically to the superior control system.
