New Grip and Rotate Modules Perform Two Operations in One Compact Package

Press Release:
  Jun 5, 2009 — Techno-Sommer Automatic is excited to announce the New DGP404 Series Parallel Grip and Rotate Modules with T-slot Guides, designed for high-load automation applications that require parts to be sorted and rotated 90 or 180 degrees. This unique combination of parallel gripper and rotator fits in tight spaces easily, while the stable T-slot guides aid the absorption of large force and moments.

“With up to 4 mm stroke per jaw, 350 N of grip force and 0.5 Nm of torque for rotation, the DGP packs a large force in a compact design,” said Sales Manager Costas Charalambous. “This in turn allows engineers increased flexibility with their application designs that will save both time and space.”

The DGP404 Series has separate pneumatic connections for grip and rotate cylinders, so the grip function can operate independently from the rotate function. Offered in six different models for inside and outside gripping, each unit can be set for either 90 or 180 degrees of rotation and has magnetic position sensor slots built into the housing. These models are also available with mechanical gripping-force retention.
