SCHUNK 2-Finger Angular Gripper PWG-plus

There are many advantages to using the PWG-plus gripper

The PWG-plus is compact and robust due to the oval piston drive, the strong aluminum housing, and the almost wear-free T-bar drive. Depending on the application, it can also be equipped with an ID/OD spring safety device. Numerous accessories are available, including inductive proximity sensors and magnetic sensors.


The PWG-plus gripper jaws and gripper mounting holes are capable of mounting directly to certain SCHUNK compensation units, attachment valves, and quick-change jaw systems.

There are many advantages to using the PWG-plus gripper, including the design of outrigger workpiece supports due to threaded connections and centering sleeve options. There are also a variety of gripper sizes and gripping torques.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
