PHD: Parallel pneumatic gripper
The Series GRH Parallel Pneumatic Grippers from PHD, Inc. are available in four sizes that provide long jaw travel while accommodating long tooling lengths.
Their design incorporates an extended support guide system with wide slot jaws to minimize tooling deflection, support large moment capacities, and provide side load stability. A dual bore provides higher total grip force, and low breakaway pressure allows for gripping of a wide variety of part sizes, including delicate parts.
Series GRH Grippers feature a hard-coated aluminum body for corrosion-resistance, making them suitable for harsh environments. They have total jaw travels up to 125 mm (4.921 in.) that allow for gripping of larger and multiple-sized parts, as well as encapsulated tooling.
Large moment capacities provide a wide variety of applications, and their low profile reduces moments for robots.
