Introduction

Precise handling of components, parts and tools at automated assembly lines and sample handling and manipulation in life science are most crucial positioning tasks. To address the growing demand to control tweezers, pincers and grippers with very high precision we have complemented our product portfolio with versatile gripping solutions.
Modularity is one of the key features of our products. All of our grippers consist of a linear piezo stage and a gripping jaw which can be easily exchanged and customized if required. Several different and specialized designs of gripper jaws are available.
When equipped with a position sensor the grippers allow full closed-loop control about the gripping process and the opening of the jaw. In addition, force sensors integrated into our parallel micro-gripper SGP-17F allow to control not only the jaw opening but also the gripping force when handling fragile or highly delicate objects. If your specific application requires a dedicated design, do not hesitate to contact our application specialist to discuss possible solutions or fully customized designs.

SG-06

The SG-06 micro-gripper is ideal for space constrained setups and applications where miniaturization is the top priority.

SG-1730

Based on one of SmarAct’s most compact linear stages this gripper system became a very compact and versatile tool for pick and place applications for optics and electronics.

SGP-17F

The SGP-17F micro-gripper is the perfect solution when it comes to applications like the active alignment of optics or sub-components or the parallel gripping of delicate objects with a constant force.
