Gripper for shafts


In the production of garage doors by Europe's largest garage door manufacturer, steel shafts needed to be supplied to a MAG welding system. Harsh ambient conditions and rapid cycle times posed a particular challenge.


The solution was a triple gripper for various steel shaft types. The gripper can grab using both the front and the longitudinal sides. The use of rugged standard grippers ensures a long service life with maximum process reliability.
