Design Components Toolholding/Workholding

The MGR5 brings operation force 10g or less capability into range. Light moving mass reduces impact force during small product placement.

MGR5 specs:

  • Compact and lightweight
  • Light force capability 10g or less
  • Soft-Land capability for pick and place of delicate and fragile parts
  • Each jaw can be independently controlled in force, position, and velocity
  • 5 micron linear encoder standard, 1 micron optional

SMAC electric grippers incorporate programmable speeds, positions, and forces with data feedback. The ability to independently control each jaw allows precise force control, measurement, and positioning, making them suited for a range of positioning, measuring, and inspection applications, particularly where 100% verification is required.
