Page 83 SCHUNK: Long-Stroke Gripper for Cobot Applications


Morrisville, NC — SCHUNK has introduced its Co-act EGL-C long- stroke


gripper, designed for


human/robot collaborative applica- tions. The long-stroke gripper achieves high gripping forces up to 450


is particularly focused on the auto- motive-related supply industry, and also on carmakers who are intensive- ly working on relevant HRC scenar- ios. SCHUNK Co-act team special- ists are also focusing on other indus- tries, such as machine building, where the powerful grippers may be useful in HRC applications. To meet the biomechanical limit


values that are defined in the ISO/TS 15066 standard despite the high gripping force, the SCHUNK Co-act EGL-C gripper is equipped with a combined force/path measurement. Force measuring jaws and an incre- mental encoder are integrated in the base jaws, and permanently control

N and combines them with a stroke of 1.7 in. (42.5 mm) per finger. The intel- ligent 24V powerhouse is suitable for handling workspace weights of up to 5 lb (2.25 kg) and can be used in a wide range of applications. The gripping force of the


DGUV-certified SCHUNK grippers acting on each gripper finger was previously limited to 140 N. The com- pany now offers a new generation of components with the Co-act EGL-C, and, for the first time, opens up potential in the human/robot collabo- ration for handling weights beyond small parts assembly.

Binder Intros M12 Panel Mount Connector


Camarillo, CA — Binder has expand- ed its M12 product family with the addition of the positionable and lock- able M12 male panel-mounted con- nector. Standard panel-mount con- nectors have a fixed contact insert, limiting the mating connector to a single fixed position.


the individual gripping forces and the position of the gripper fingers. The gripping procedure is


stored in the gripper, and is divided into several phases. Up to a theoreti- cally taught distance of 0.2 in. (4 mm) to the workpiece — correspon- ding to far less than the thickness of a finger — the gripping force is limit- ed to 30 N. If a collision should hap- pen in this approach phase, the grip- per immediately goes to the safety- monitored stop, without the risk of causing an injury. In the second phase, at a workpiece distance of less than 0.2 in. (4 mm), the fingers close at a freely definable maximum force of up to 450 N.


If the system measures a compli-


ance issue in the closing phase, which could happen if a gripped workpiece is too small and the operator wants to remove it manually, this movement is also automatically stopped. In the third phase, the gripper detects if the component is safely gripped and acti- vates the integrated gripping force maintenance by applying the brake. This ensures that the gripped compo- nent does not get lost even in the


event of an emergency stop. Contact: SCHUNK, 211 Kitty

M12 male panel-mounted connector.


The new M12 connector has a


separate contact body, allowing it to be positioned exactly where users want the mating right-angle cable connec- tor. This innovative feature allows users to keep the cable from obstruct- ing other connections or devices on the panel. Additionally, the contact body is prewired with 24 AWG wires for fast and easy assembly, and available with 4, 5 or 8 contacts. Other features of the connector


include: 4A (3A UL) and 1.5A (2A UL) rated currents; 250, 60 and 30V rated voltages; IP68 protection; gold contact plating; and single-wire 24


AWG termination. Contact: Binder USA, 3903
