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.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
