Rohm Products of America has introduced a synthetic gripper, the RRMG, which it claims offers 30 per cent more clamping force to large workpiece handling than its predecessor.
Perfect for the secure gripping and clamping of complex, sensitive parts, the lightweight, yet robust RRMG synthetic gripper has jaws with free-form surfaces that adapt to different workpiece geometries, whether they be round or prismatic in shape. It has an optimized structure with reinforcements for maximum rigidity and long service life. It can perform up to 16 million gripping cycles without experiencing wear or requiring maintenance. For maximum process control and automation, users can add optional position monitoring to the RRMG via installable sensors.
Available in two sizes with gripping forces of 80 and 152 (N), RÖHM is able to customize the RRMG by developing these grippers around the 3D workpiece models provided by customers. The company also relies on selective laser sintering to manufacture these products.
