Zimmer Group brings low-price gripper to the market

The pioneer in grippers is now offering its customers a pneumatic parallel gripper in the form of the GPP1000 series.

Zimmer Group has further expanded its product range to include cost-effective yet robust automation components. The pioneer in grippers is now offering its customers a pneumatic parallel gripper in the form of the GPP1000 series. This gripper makes profitable production possible thanks to its remarkably low price, which is a dream come true for many customers.


The new gripper series GPP1000s unbeatably affordable price not only makes exceptionally cost-effective production a reality but also offers 100N gripping force in three different strokes (4 mm, 8 mm, 16 mm) per gripper jaw. This single-acting gripper is supplied for use as an external gripper, for pressure-free opening using reset spring. A few simple manual adjustments are all that is needed to convert this gripper so that its jaws are closed when not under pressure. This means the gripper can also be used as an internal gripper.

Each gripper has two grooves for holding the magnetic field sensors used to sense the gripper's position. The grippers are supplied with a glasfiber reinforced gripper jaw set and the material required to attach them. However, customer-specific gripper jaws can be installed at any time.

To make it easier for its customers to select the best product, Zimmer Group has divided its product portfolio into application profiles. The GPP1000 belongs to the AP1 base class, whose products are designed to handle all the essential tasks with a special emphasis on cost-effectiveness.

Despite its very reasonable price, the GPP1000 offers the same tried-and-tested quality you expect from all Zimmer Group products. With the ability to run for up to 2 million cycles without maintenance, it meets all the requirements for reliable, cost-effective production!

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
