Air picker and air gripper; Pneumatic work holding devices for firm and precise handling, both id and od styles. The end effectors offer the user a wide range of advantages over traditional pick and place work holding devices. Simply by varying the air pressure in the picker or gripper, the user can conform the end effector to the diameter that is being handled and the force being applied to the work piece. This is especially critical in applications with sensitive, thin-walled, or fragile objects. The object being picked up does not have to have a circular configuration. Since it has an elastomer bladder construction, it will conform to any shape.

  • Pneumatic pickers and grippers
  • Air strobe actuatoers
  • Vibration isolation
