Gripper for chocolate muffins


In the production of chocolate muffins, the muffins needed to be dipped in a chocolate bath. The special handling challenge here was creating a food-grade gripper system design.


The basis of the design is a GK series standard angular gripper. This gripper was fabricated with jaws made of food-grade VA material as well as being modified with food-grade lubrication. An SF-C series standard swivel unit is used for rotation.
