I always find what I need in SCHUNK's PGN-plus-P gripper portfolio– and if an application is particularly unique, my contact at SCHUNK helps me devise a customized solution," according to the expert.

Reducing complexity
Despite widespread standardization, the individual requirements of customers pose a challenge for engineers at successful companies time and again. The complete range of PGN-plus-P gripper series program from SCHUNK helps to considerable reduce the complexity. "When it comes to the selection and implementation of the appropriate gripping systems, SCHUNK always completely supports us. And often enough, our contact persons visit us directly on site to provide us with some highly practical support during commissioning," explains the engineer. The geometries of the grippers are already stored in their CAD tools and selection of them is highly simplified, incorporated into the planning, and also tested on the computer right away using a simulation.


Nothing is impossible

Thomas Imme, the automation specialist can choose from 189 PGN-plus-P standard variants and can cover all requirements for gripping force, stroke, or workpiece dimensions. Due to their patented multi-tooth guidance, the PGN-plus-P offers a high moment torque and with the permanent lubrication, are lifelong maintenance-free. The pneumatic universal gripper can be used in environments from clean to slightly dirty, and for dirty environments special variants of the gripper are available. By using the vast range of sensor accessories and the numerous custom options, the range of the benchmark gripper PGN-plus-P can be significantly expanded.


It's all about efficiency and a good feeling
"We have used various gripping systems in the past, but the others were not satisfactory. For some time, we have been consistently using the SCHUNK product line, and we are very satisfied with it. Additionally, I am certain that I can offer the most reliable grippers to my customers," summarizes Thomas Imme.
