EGP electric gripper for small components

The electric high-performance gripper for small components used in assembly automation.

With the electric SCHUNK EGP 2-finger parallel gripper the change from pneumatic to mechatronic gripping modules becomes as easy as child’s play. The EGP can be easily integrated into the higher-level control with 24 V power supply via digital inputs I/O.

Smart gripper, perfectly integrated into the system

  • 24 V power supply and control via digital I/O with just one cable connection.
  • Adjustment is as easy as for pneumatic components.
  • Practically no wearing parts and easy integration into existing electric systems.
  • Speed version for high performance.
  • 4 sizes cover the great range of gripping components.
  • Fully compatible into the 24 V mechatronic modular system.

More Details

Superior technology for efficient processes

Compared to similar grippers for small components with integrated electronics, the EGP scores with:

a 180% better gripping force/mass ratio and high speed.

4-stage adjustable gripping force for handling of sensitive components.

Efficient cross roller guides are also used as for the pneumatic MPG-plus miniature parallel gripper, for achieving a high efficiency.

100% compatible with all SCHUNK components from the mechatronic modular system.

Pioneering sensor options for safe processes.

Process reliability, no vibrations and therefore risk factors for the service life.

Very easy!
Adjustment of the gripping force

The gripping force of the EGP can be adjusted in four stages, individually to the sensitive workpieces. Depending on the requirement, it is adjusted to 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of the maximum gripping force of 140 N. Your benefit: flexible gripping force adjustment in the handling process.

Fits everywhere!
Highest installation flexibility

Diverse mounting options ensure fast and easy assembly and change of the grippers. By using centering sleeves, the gripper can be easily positioned, and fastened from all sides and on the bottom by screwing through or on. For multiple fastening on the bottom, an adapter plate is available as an option. It allows space-saving assembly if several grippers are fastened side by side.

For every case of application!
The sensor system

IN inductive proximity switch. For monitoring of the end positions with either axial or lateral cable outlet available. With 30 cm long cable and cable connector.

Position sensor!
Flexible FPS system

The FPS sensor system determines the position of gripper jaws. Afterwards it digitally indicates in which of the five free, learnable areas the current jaw position is located. In addition, the jaw position can be read out by the software “FPS controller”.
