Gripper for engine block
For linking tooling machines, the workpiece needed to be moved to different clamping positions. To do this, the workpiece needed to be turned (reoriented) in the gripper. The challenge here was primarily the high workpiece weight of 450 kg combined with the large flight circle.
A gripper with a rugged basic drive was developed in a linear guide design. Special long swivel jaws, which are driven by a servo motor, were developed for swiveling the parts. Furthermore, the gripper is equipped with an XY axis compensation module to compensate for position inaccuracies when depositing or picking up items.
