End-of-arm tooling supplier AGS – Automation Greifsysteme Schwope — introduced a magnetic gripper at K 2016, for companies that handle both plastic and sheet metal parts, or hybrid parts.
For the first time, AGS provided its proven PreciGrip connection technology with a pneumatic-switched permanent magnet that does not drop anything, even in case of a pressure or energy failure.
With a combination of suction cups, clamps and magnetic grippers, the gripper can handle hybrid parts, loophole sheet metals, metal sheets and section and perforated plates, complex formed cuttings or converted sheet metal parts.
AGS is based in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany.
