innovative large-area gripper especially for handling wooden parts
- The gripper’s interior chamber is optimized with a small evacuation volume. Not only does this reduce the amount of compressed air that is used, resulting in lower operating costs: reduced CO2 emissions make it better for the environment.
- Because the chambers and check valves for the suction and blow-off functions are separate, items can be set down quickly, using less power. This shortens handling cycle times. Handling processes can by executed dynamically, as quickly as possible, using energy efficiently.
-> Possible annual savings of 221,952 ft3 of compressed air – saves 456 lbs CO2 per year.
