Unique design enables the collet to grip your part on either the outside diameter (O.D.) or inside diameter (I.D.) - now any part with a hole can be gripped! Pneumatically adjustable 360° clamping force enables rapid part transfer and allows efficient handling of delicate or rugged objects. The C-8800 Collet Gripper can also function as a workholding device for grinding, deburring, or polishing operations.
RAD’s Heavy-Duty Collet Gripper:
*Grips with 360° of clamping contact on either the O.D. or I.D. for optimum friction gripping
*Distributes pressure evenly around part’s circumference allowing delicate or thin-walled parts to be handled without part deformation
*Ensures precise part centering with repeatability to within 0.0005” of collet’s original centered position
*Allows handling of lightweight, delicate items as well as rugged, heavy parts through pneumatically adjustable grip force
*Cycles quickly for rapid part transfer
*Reaches into narrow areas or where parts are nested tightly together with its slim nose design
*Includes positive alignment pilot to improve concentricity of collet gripper to robot
*Requires no additional gripper fingers
*Provides durability with hardened steel collet and bushing yet remains lightweight with aluminum body construction
*Allows easy change-out of collets for maximum uptime
*Locking alignment screw prevents collet from rotating during operation
