Schunk highlights eGrip tool for ordering grippers

Schunk eGripAt the centre of customer interest on the Schunk stand at MACH 2016 with regard to Industry 4.0 was the company’s innovative new eGrip system. Acknowledged as the world’s first fully-automated design and ordering tool for additive manufactured gripper fingers, the Schunk eGrip is a browser-based, license-free application to create and order tailor-made gripper fingers in just a few mouse clicks.

Users just have to upload STEP or STL data of the part to grip, and add specific information such as weight, gripper base, mounting direction and relative position of the part to the gripper. The software automatically configures the gripper fingers around the part, generating the optimal finger design, and immediately gives price and estimated delivery information.

MACH 2016 was all about ‘Synergy’ for Schunk. The company had its equipment on at least nine other exhibitor stands at the UK’s showpiece manufacturing event – a glowing endorsement for the industry leading brand. With Schunk’s world leading equipment in operation on the stands of DMG Mori, Fanuc, ETG, Citizen and ABB Robotics to name a few, Schunk was clearly the first choice automation specialist and workholding partner for exhibitors and MACH visitors alike.
