PGN-plus-P: Forever a benchmark

The best values of the Industry!

All values of our PGN-plus-P have been impressing for more than 30 years! As the No. 1 universal gripper, it sets sustainable benchmarks in the market and is synonymous with perfection and versatility.

The industry leader in each of its values

The PGN-plus-P demonstrates proof of performance

One of a kind! The patented SCHUNK multi-tooth guidance

Proven technology. Now even better - integrated in the PGN-plus-P!

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 PGN-plus-P and PGN-plus-E universal grippers are the products of over 30 years of SCHUNK experience.

PGN-plus-P with multi-tooth guidance and permanent lubrication

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 benefits at a glance:

  • Up to 120% higher finger load is possible*
  • Up to 50% longer gripper fingers possible*
  • Increased performance at the same gripper size and higher performance from the system
  • Rapid and even lubricant distribution even with short strokes

* compared to a T-slot guidance

Technology makes all the difference!

Technology makes all the difference!

The technology of the SCHUNK PGN-plus-P gripper has more to offer! With its powerful features, the PGN-plus-P is in a class of its own.

Profit from the benefits:

  • Rapid and even lubricant distribution,
    even with short strokes
  • Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Permanently higher performance
  • More compact, efficient systems
  • Continuously reliable and robust

Product information

PGN-plus-P technology in detail

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.

  • Up to 50% longer gripper fingers

    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.

  • Longest service life due to lubrication pockets in the multi-tooth guidance

    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.

  • Up to 50% higher gripping force

    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.
  • Up to 120% higher finger load is possible

    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 surfaces.

Unlimited flexibility

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.

PGN-plus-P accessories

Sensor system

Unique variety of sensors, e.g. magnetic switch MMS, inductive Proximity switches IN and many more.

MMS 22-PI 2

PGN-plus-P suitable for any application!


  • Gripping force maintenance version AS/IS
    The mechanical gripping force maintenance version ensures a minimum gripping force also in the event of a pressure drop. In the AS/S version this acts as a closing force, in the IS version as an opening force
  • Corrosion protection version K
    for use in corrosion-inducing environments
  • High-temperature version V/HT
    for use in hot environments
  • Precision version P
    for maximum accuracy
  • ATEX-Version EX
    for explosive environments
  • Dust-tight version SD
    absolutely dust-tight, increased degree of protection against the ingress of materials.
  • Application-specific protective covers
    up to protection class IP67, for use in high temperature ranges.
  • Additional versions
    Various options can be combined with each other.
