Three-Jaw Grippers For Material Handling
De-Sta-Co Robohand offers 3-jaw sealed and shielded grippers designed for a wide range of part-handling applications. The DTE series parallel gripper features a sealed design and provides high grip force, excellent repeatability and long-finger capability, the company says. It is offered with a variety of options and accessories, including a stripper plate designed to hold parts securely against position stops during transfer into a lathe.
Though a shielded design, the DTH series gripper has features similar to the DTE series. These include multiple strokes per size and a standard purge/scavenge part that has an optional spring assist feature, ensuring parts are not dropped if air is lost.
