Gripper for collaborating robots



Parallel grippers, vacuum grippers, centric grippers and magnetic grippers

The range of grippers is diverse. So diverse that you can quickly lose track of them. But once you are able to distinguish between the different areas of application of the tools, light comes into the darkness. We clarify the different areas and support you in making the right choice.



Our products

Parallel grippers

General information about parallel grippers

Parallel grippers (small parts grippers, universal grippers, large stroke grippers, swivel grippers) are suitable for safe and precise handling of workpieces. The option of equipping the grippers with inductive sensors, magnetic switches or workpiece-specific gripper fingers increases their functionality, process reliability and productivity. Whether electric, servo-electric or pneumatic, we already have your gripping solution in our portfolio.

Centric gripper

General information about centric grippers

In most cases, 3 finger grippers are used. Pneumatic grippers are needed for high gripping forces, electric grippers are needed to avoid using external media or to perform grip controls. The possibility to combine grippers, e.g. with sensors, product-specific gripper fingers or intermediate jaws, ensures more productivity.

Advantages of centric grippers

  • Gripping accuracy
  • Longevity
  • Investment security
  • Chemical resistance


For self-centering gripping of round parts, especially for chip-removing area.

Magnetic gripper

General information about magnetic grippers

When handling ferromagnetic workpieces in use, magnetic grippers help you in the simple solution of the application. The use of magnetic grippers allows the highest flexibility of your application and guarantees that even in emergency stop situations, the gripped object will continue to be held firmly not fall down. Magnetic grippers are especially helpful for workpieces that cannot be picked up in the clamping handle

Advantages magnetic gripper

  • Energy-efficient
  • Nearly contour-independent


  • Machine loading CNC
  • Bending presses
  • Machining machines
  • Ferromagnetic workpieces
