ROBOTIC GRIPPERS FOR EVERY POSSIBLE REQUIREMENT

With the inevitable move towards Industry 4.0, many businesses are investing in automation to improve their productivity. So workholding manufacturer Kitagawa has released the Promano range of robotic grippers, available in Australia from Dimac Tooling.

This extensive range of 2- and 3-jaw parallel grippers caters to different types of robot arms and every possible gripping requirement. Multiple variations and options are available, all of which offer high repeatability and a long operating life.

A new mounting style allows for a smaller protrusion compared with conventional grippers, and a high gripping force provides stable gripping of the heaviest work pieces. The body is highly rigid, improving gripping accuracy, but also lightweight and compact, so it does not limit the load capacity of the robot. All of the grippers offer excellent swarf protection, ultimately improving maintenance.

The 2-jaw parallel grippers come in standard, low profile and sealed units. The standard unit offers high quality and excellent durability. The low profile unit has a slimline body providing a high gripping force and features an air purge specification. The sealed unit features a waterproof and dustproof design able to endure the most severe conditions, and a lightweight and compact body.

Two of the 3-jaw parallel grippers feature a through-hole suitable for attaching air sensing and air blast monitoring equipment. Standard and sealed units are also available.

The sliding surfaces of the grippers can be easily cleaned without detaching the gripper from the robot, simply by removing the master jaw from the front.
Kitagawa is renowned for designing and making the finest power chucks available. Unique innovations by highly specialised design teams and a proven history of excellence ensure solutions for all workholding requirements.

Paul Fowler, Dimac’s Managing Director, said: “2018 sees Kitagawa celebrate their 100 year anniversary and Dimac celebrate 35 years as sole distributor for Kitagawa in Australia and New Zealand. Their power chucks and rotary tables have earned a reputation for outstanding quality and durability. I have no doubt the Promano range of robotic grippers will further cement that reputation.

“I’m sure Promano robotic grippers will find ready acceptance in the marketplace and appeal to those businesses that are keen to add another dose of productivity to their already automated workplaces.”
