Innovative mechatronic Gripper with integrated Web Server

With the WSG 50 from SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems belongs to a new generation of mechatronic high-tech grippers.

With the WSG 50 from SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems belongs to a new generation of mechatronic high-tech grippers. Beside Profibus DP, CAN and RS232, the WSG 50 for the first time disposes of an ethernet TCP/IP interface. Via a typical web browser, the WSG 50 can be commissioned quickly and easily, without the installation of a new software.


Due to the integrated "gripped component detection" and the high positioning accuracy, the WSG 50 is for the first time able to carry out a gripping command in a shorter cycle time, and the superior process control is significantly relieved. The WSG 50 is a universal genius. For particularly difficult cases, the range of functions of the installed and easy to learn script language can be individually adjusted by the customer himself. The contained scripts are filed on the built-in SD card.

The WSG 50 is the first gripper which disposes of an electric sensor interface in the base jaws. This is the basis for a direct integration of different sensor systems in gripping pro- cesses. Thus it is an ideal helper for sophisticated automation solutions, where a high flexibility or sensitivity of the gripping process is required. With the optional WSG-FMF force-measuring finger, forces which occur during the gripping process can be precisely recognized and controlled. The WSG 50 provides a stroke of 110 mm and a variable gripping force from 5 to120 N. Now in stock.
