The multiple award-winning premium pneumatic grippers of the 5000 series feature an extremely rugged, hard-coated, steel-in-steel profile groove guide and can truly take on any role. It was designed for truly universal use and has a number of features depending on the variant (speed, high gripping forces, long gripper finger lengths). It offers the right solution for every application!
- Pneumatic gripper with pioneering IO-Link technology
- Up to 90% less compressed air required – cycle times are reduced by up to 50%
- Only one cable needed for connection to robot
- Valve technology, sensors, status display, pressure and temperature monitoring – all integrated
- Precise part detection possible
- High number of workpiece data records can be programmed easily
- Holds up to practically everything it’s confronted with in its area of use
- Worry-free for up to 30 million cycles without maintenance
All premium grippers of the 5000 series are corrosion-protected as standard and sealed in accordance with IP64, which means they are dust-proof and protected against water splashes on all sides. When a protector is used, they offer a seal class of IP67 (dust-proof and protected against temporary submersion) – ideal for use in clean rooms, for example.
Thanks to their low friction coefficients, compact structure and excellent emergency running properties, the grippers of the 5000 series can handle at least 30 million cycles without maintenance. This is an excellent choice for a reliable, continuous and fail-safe production process!
Ready for Industrie 4.0 and looking for the right grippers? Then we recommend our -IL variant of the 5000 series. These pneumatic-electric IO-Link hybrid grippers are excellent for users who are bringing their gripping applications into the world of Industrie 4.0, but do not want to forgo a pneumatic drive. A sensor is integrated into the gripper that determines the position of the gripper jaws in the range of +- 0.05 millimeters. As a result, not only is process monitoring possible, but also the identification of workpieces based on their diameter, for instance. Furthermore, a total of 32 workpiece data records can be programmed into the grippers.
In addition to our grippers with a steel-in-steel profile groove guide (Steel Linear Guide), you can also choose a model with a steel-aluminum profile groove guide (Aluminum Linear Guide). These grippers are particularly interesting for price-conscious customers who nevertheless do not want to forgo trusted Zimmer Group quality. Thanks to their steel-aluminum profile groove guide, GPP/GPD5000AL grippers technically outperform all T-slot grippers and are at least the equals of the multi-tooth guides on the market. With its uncompromising quality "Made in Germany," Zimmer Group guarantees up to 15 million cycles without maintenance.
