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.
SmarAct's micro gripping systems are able to transform multi-axis stages to micro-robots allowing users to precisely perform manufacturing and assembly tasks with highest precision. For example adding a SG-1730 Micro Gripper to a XYZ-SLC17:30 positioning system yield to a very compact and versatile micro-robot. This robot is the perfect match for simple but very precise pick and place tasks or equipped with one or two rotation stages for more advanced micro-assembly processes.
