Gripper for cylinder heads


On a tractor manufacturer's production line for 4- and 6-cylinder heads, tooling machines needed to be loaded and unloaded through automation.


The solution was a weight-optimized gripper design, a manual gripper jaw quick-change system and a stroke measurement system on the stroke for type detection. An active pressure unit and an integrated axis compensation module provided the "clamping transfer".
