RAD’s Food Handling Pneumatic Parallel Gripper offers:
*2 jaw parallel motion
*compliance with FDA requirements for food handling
*double seals to guarantee the mechanism is isolated from the environment
*a purge system that removes any pneumatic system contaminants that pass through the seals of the gripper from the environment
*accuracy - utilizes independent force and synchronization systems to assure precision
*de-ionized (D.I.) water tolerance
RAD’s Food Handling Parallel Gripper operates through two independent systems - the gripping force is provided through two pneumatic pistons and the synchronization is provided through a double helix that centers the part to ±0.001” (±0.025 mm). RAD’s Food Handling Parallel Gripper uses a linear bearing system that is constructed with advanced polymers to minimize weight and size. The torque and force capabilities are maintained over the life of the gripper due to the length of the bearing surface over which the loads are distributed.
