SCHUNK Gripping System for Universal Robots < Back to overview
What is it?

Electric 2-finger parallel gripper with smooth-running base jaws guided on roller bearings. The powerhouse for small parts handling is a revolution in the field of mechatronic grippers. The gripper is
easily controlled via digital inputs and outputs from the UR robot, and it can be assembled on the UR 3, UR 5 or UR 10.

How does it work?

The mounting, connecting and commissioning of the gripper is easily completed in just a few minutes. Just mount the unit with the flange and four screws to the tool interface of the robot. Connect the unit
electrically with the M8 plug to the connector of the robot. To set the switching points of the inductive proximity switches or adjust the gripping force, remove the cover parts as described in the operating
manual. The gripper can be easily controlled via the digital inputs and outputs from the tool interface of the UR robot.

Features and benefits
  • Designed for UR 3, UR 5 and UR 10
  • The gripping force can be adjusted in four stages up to a maximum of 140 N
  • Easy to integrate with the existing electrical and mechanical tool interface from UR
  • Integrated proximity switches for position feedback
  • Easy mounting without removing the protective cover
