Schunk's EMH electro-permanent gripperClick image to enlarge

Schunk’s EMH is the world's first electrically activated 24 V permanent magnetic gripper with integrated electronics.

Electro-permanent magnets can grip many different parts with no change over, making these end effectors more flexible than other designs. The magnets have high power density and compact size which increases the available payload for the robot to which it is mounted. Operation of electro-permanent magnets is energy efficient by design as the magnet uses power only when switching from active to inactive and does not consume power otherwise.

The EMH gripper combines the strengths of magnetic technology with the benefits of 24V technology, creating a compact tool for robotics. The electronics are integrated inside the housing and are actuated easily via the digital I/O. No external control electronics are required.

The EMH gives feedback status for active/inactive and part presence sensing with errors signaled on an LED display on the housing. Unlike other magnetic grippers, no maintenance is required.
