Schunk brings magnetic gripper to UK exhibition

170531_SchunkSchunk will once again be showing why its product range is the industry benchmark at the Manufacturing & Engineering North East (MENE) exhibition. At the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on the 5th and 6th of July on Stand D13, the German manufacturer will highlight the new GSW-M Magnetic Gripper, a vacuum gripper for spindle interfaces that is ideal for handling flat components.

In the field of automatic loading and unloading of machining centers, the GSW-M Magnetic Gripper provides a compressed air and coolant supply via the tool mounting. The advantages of the system are that end users can benefit from a low-price module for flexible automation in the machine tool. The innovative new system provides automated changeover from the gripper to the storage rack, providing fully automated workpiece changeover without a robot or gantry system interface.

The universal GSW-M Magnetic Gripper can be configured to suit a wide variety of workpieces.
