The world's most compact electric rotary gripping unit
The SCHUNK EGS electric rotary gripping unit makes the switch to pneumatic-free handling solutions child's play. For the first time ever, it successfully combines electric gripping and swiveling in the smallest space in a compact housing. The low-maintenance and price-attractive module paves the way for highly efficient pneumatic-free systems. Coupling of the gripping and rotation gear, patented by SCHUNK, allows continuous rotation without an electric feed-through. The module is equipped with stationary, brushless and thus wear-free 24 V-DC motors. It comes complete without moving cables, slip rings or shock absorbers thus increasing process stability, and the availability of assembly plants.
