kurt rv36gripperClick image to enlargeKurt Workholding’s RV36 is a a two-finger parallel robotic gripper featuring automated finger/end effector changes without changing the gripper body itself.

Quick change jaws allow customers to save on gripper-body expenses and create greater part-holding flexibility.

Loaded with features, the compact Kurt RV36 Gripper comes standard with integrated electronics featuring sensors that ensure fingers and parts are in place and ready for production. High-strength aluminum alloy keeps gripper weight to a minimum while a hard-coat finish reduces wear and increases life in the field. Smaller gripper size allows easier storage where space is a premium.

“We saw an opportunity to increase gripper automation efficiency and to save money for customers with a quick-change finger system using pull-stud technology,” said Steve Kane. “Our unique product is the first robot gripper with the ability to automatically change gripper fingers and the ability to accommodate an endless variety of end-effector options.”

The Gripper’s double-acting piston allows for maximum clamping and un-clamping force. Customers can choose from carvable aluminum or steel finger options that can be machined to work in a variety of applications. Additional finger sets are sold separately.
