RPM Series Gripper is a miniature pneumatic parallel gripper with excellent parallelism and accuracy between the gripper mounting surface and jaw surface. Jaws are front mounted and are supported with 'Dual-V" roller bearings to provide low friction motion and are preloaded for maximum support and zero side play. RPM Pneumatic Grippers are top mounted and have air ports on the side or top for manifold mounting to keep the air line away from the gripper area. These grippers are available in stroke lengths from 3.2 to 6.3mm (0.13 to 0.25") with a gripper force of 36 N (8 lbs).
Pneumatic linear motion pneumatic components are double acting
air cylinders that require a dry air supply with filtering to 40 microns or
better. For best control of pneumatic components, flow control valves
(regulating out) should be installed to regulate the speed of the device.
