FIPA Inc. of Cary, N.C., said its new series of compact ID grippers come in a diameter range of from 3-10 millimeters. They grip small parts from the inside, for an alternative to suction cups and sprue grippers.
The single-acting, pneumatic expansion grippers are designed to handle lightweight parts with small dimensions. They can be integrated into complex gripper systems.
The small grippers have nylon grip heads and are approved for direct contact with food.
FIPA Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of FIPA GmbH in Ismaning, Germany.
