Powerful Angular Gripper for Every Need

Suitable for applications in clean and slightly dirty environments, PWG-plus combines double oval piston drive, one-piece aluminum housing, and wear-free lever mechanism. System features gripping moments between 3.5 and 120 Nm, stroke per finger of 15°, and over travel angle per jaw of at least 3°.

SCHUNK is further expanding its program of universal gripping modules: After the parallel gripper PGN-plus, the centric gripper PZN-plus, and the small parts gripper MPG-plus, SCHUNK now introduces an angular gripper, the PWG-plus with a high performance compact design, which offers many options for universal use in virtually every industry and environment.


The double oval piston drive, the one-piece, high-strength aluminum housing, and the practically wear-free lever mechanism make the gripper a compact and robust powerhouse. Depending on the application it can be equipped with or without mechanical gripping force maintenance. In addition, extensive accessories are available, including inductive sensors and magnetic switches.

The angular gripper fits seamlessly into the world's largest line of standard grippers, which includes more than 10,000 components. Both on the finger and bottom side it is equipped with a bolt pattern identical to that of the PGN-plus universal gripper, which allows direct combination with compensation units, valves, or quick-change jaw systems.

The PWG-plus is available in six sizes for workpiece weights between 0.5 kg and 6.1 kg. Further technical specifications include gripping moments between 3.5 Nm and 120 Nm, a stroke per finger of 15°, and an over travel angle per jaw of at least 3°. The gripper is suitable for applications in clean and slightly dirty environments, especially for the handling of crankshafts and camshafts, as well as for gantry loading of interlinked machining centers.
