Gripper for taps


A trowalizing system needed to be equipped with taps. In the gripper design, the interference contours were challenging, both due to different loading positions in the machine as well as when picking up taps from the magazines.


As the solution, a triple gripper based on standard Zimmer Group components with an individual jaw set was designed.
