Pneumatic positioning device
Pneumatic positioning device for flexible control of standard pneumatic grippers via IO-Link.

The PPD allows flexibility in all applications with pneumatic grippers through free positioning, gripping force and speed adjustments. And all possible due to a simple set-up consisting of gripper, sensor and positioning device. Thanks to prefabricated PLC function blocks, commissioning is also very simple. 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.

Your advantages

  • Free positioning of a pneumatic gripper
    enables cycle time optimization or collision avoidance by pre-positioning the gripper finger
  • Adjustability of gripping force by adjusting the output pressure
    for gripping workpieces with different sensitivities
  • Adjustability of the gripper jaw speed
    for workpiece-friendly gripping due to the reduction of the gripping impulse
  • Use of standard pneumatic grippers
    enables use in various applications by selecting from the large range of products in the portfolio for pneumatic grippers
  • Simple optimization of existing production plants
    by retrofitting the pneumatic positioning unit PPD without changing the gripping system
  • Simple commissioning and efficient operation
    by using IO-Link as communication interface
