With the new PGL-plus-P, SCHUNK is introducing a flexible and robust powerhouse that shines above all else for its increased safety.

This pneumatic gripper is the first in the world to have GripGuard certified safe gripping force maintenance.

With GripGuard, at least 80% of the nominal gripping force is reliably maintained in the event of pressure loss. This reduces the risk of operators injuring themselves during part removal, for example, to a minimum, as uncontrolled jaw movements in the event of a sudden drop in pressure are eliminated from the outset. Also, no workpieces are lost in the event of a compressed air supply failure or an emergency stop.
