RAD’s Pneumatic Collet Gripper offers:
*precise picking and placing of cylindrical parts that are uniform in size
*high clamping force for rapid part transfer
*self-centering of parts for grinding, deburring, etc.
*360 degrees of clamping contact on the part
*pneumatically adjustable clamping force
A precision collet is enclosed in a housing that is tapered to conform to the outside diameter of the collet. The collet is linked to a double-acting piston and as the piston actuates, the collet is forced to either open and extend or close and retract.
Note: RAD’s Collet Gripper is precisely manufactured for a particular part dimension so is best suited for applications where production parts have tight tolerances.
