The multi-tooth guidance of the SCHUNK grippers PGN-plus-P and PGN-plus-E has been further perfected with the permanent lubrication and sets the technological benchmark for this gripper class. The current universal grippers PGN-plus-P and PGN-plus-E are the products of over 30 years of SCHUNK experience.
We have improved the tried and tested technology even further in the universal gripper PGN-plus-P. For multi-tooth guidance, the supporting dimension between the six load-bearing shoulders was increased by up to 40%, thereby increasing the size of the guiding areas.

The technology of the new SCHUNK PGN-plus-P gripper has more to offer! With its powerful features, the PGN-plus-P is in a class of its own.
The SCHUNK gripper PGN-plus-P raises the bar even further for pneumatically actuated universal grippers. The optimized multi-tooth guidance with permanent lubrication sets a benchmark on the market. At the same time, the PGN-plus-P benefits from the unique range of SCHUNK accessories for virtually the entire range of all conceivable automated applications.
The improved multi-tooth guidance enables the use of even longer gripper fingers for the same gripper size due to higher maximum moments, without overloading the guidance. Gripping with optimized interfering contours during handling tasks in confined spaces, is thereby made even easier.
The lubricant pockets in the multi-tooth guidance ensure a continuous grease supply. The advantage is an even lubricant film that is created rapidly, even with short strokes.
The enlarged surface of the drive piston in the compact installation space of the PGN-plus-P allows an increase of the gripping force. Heavier workpiece weights can be handled with the same gripper size.
For multi-tooth guidance with permanent lubrication, the supporting dimension between the six load-bearing shoulders was increased, thereby increasing the size of the guiding areas.
The SCHUNK gripper PGN-plus-P stands for diversity. You benefit from an unlimited flexibility. Choose from a wide range of high-quality PGN-plus-P accessory components for your individual application. Combine different options without compromises. Or decide on the reliable special versions if special environmental influences have to be taken into account.
SCHUNK micro valves in cylindrical design can be directly mounted on the gripper. This saves cycle time, cabling costs, and compressed air costs.
The high-performance gripper with diverse monitoring options – including inductive
For all users who have flexible, strong and cost-effective on their criteria wish list, the new JGP-P 2-finger parallel gripper is a wish come true. No less than ten matching sensor systems enable a wide range of monitoring options, such as monitoring the stroke position or workpiece differentiation. Good or bad parts can be sorted quickly and reliably based on the dimensional deviations.
