The EGS from SCHUNK is perfect for the gripping of small to medium sized workpieces with flexible force and high speed in clean environments such as assembly, testing, laboratory and the pharmaceutical industry.


It is digitally activated by binary signals for easy start up and rapid integration into existing facilities and is extremely fast to achieve the maximum number of cycles per minute. The EGS is very sturdy, making it almost wear-free while also supplying high gripping forces for every cycle.

The EGS has autonomous gripping and swiveling, adjustable gripping force, and freely adjustable angle of rotation. It is energy efficient due to the use of an electric power train, and is very simple to use with no programming costs.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
