Festo introduced the DHPL, a long-stroke grippers. The long-stroke DHPL parallel gripper features ≤ 0.03 mm repetition accuracy due to three rugged guide rods and a rack and pinion design. Even though these units are light and compact and suitable for today’s smaller footprint machine, the DHPL delivers high load and torque grip. Force ratings range from 40 N to 750 N. Jaw stroke ranges from 20 mm to 200 mm. Positioning pin holes ensure the DHPL gripper mounts in the precise position of the gripper it replaces. Jaw interfaces allow for fingers and brackets to be added. Fingers and brackets enable the perfect grip for the part. Pneumatic end-position cushioning is standard and can be adjusted for optimal performance according to the moving mass and speed.
