Now pneumatic free positioning

Application image – PPD

The PPD positioning unit from SCHUNK now enables users to position freely using pneumatic grippers. And it does so with a very simple setup consisting of gripper, sensor and positioning unit, as well as easy commissioning due to prefabricated PLC function blocks. This is an optimal solution for any gripper application, where flexibility is required, for example robot applications that move workpieces of different sizes, or in close proximity to each other.

  • Free positioning of pneumatic grippers
    Cycle time optimization or collision avoidance by pre-positioning the gripper finger
  • Gripping force adjustability by adjusting the output pressure
    Gripping workpieces with different sensitivities
  • Adjustability of the gripper jaw speed
    For workpiece-friendly gripping due to the reduction of the gripping impulse
