Gripper for turned parts


Space was needed for a double gripper in the tight machining space of a lathe. Due to the cycle time, a combined finished and unfinished part gripper that can pick up two workpieces at once was needed.


A double gripper based on standard Zimmer modules was used. In doing so, the gripper brings the blank part along with it in piggyback when removing the finished part. After the finished part is removed, only a brief swivel takes place. Afterwards, machining can resume immediately. The workpiece change takes only a few seconds. The spring-loaded pressure piece ensures correct placement against the plane face of the clamping tool. The integrated pneumatic feed-through ensures low interference contours. The parts that make contact with the workpiece are made of brass to protect the surface.
