OnRobot 3FG15 gripper

hard-to-automate precision handling of cylindrical parts easy to program and deploy and provides flexibility for a range of part sizes. 

The gripper has a maximum stroke of 150 mm that can easily handle multiple processes. The three-finger design, with a 15-kg (33-lb) payload, provides a strong, stable grip for both form fit (internal) or friction fit (external) gripping.

The gripper is also ideal for packaging and palletizing applications and is
compatible with any major collaborative or light industrial robot arm through OnRobot’s One System Solution, the platform that provides a unified mechanical and electrical interface between the robot arms and any OnRobot EoAT.
