SCHUNK’s Intelligent grippers take over handling, condition monitoring, and parts of operational process management

“Closest-to-the-part” is how SCHUNK describes the exposed position of its grippers in the handling process. SCHUNK uses this advantage to develop intelligent modules that can do much more than conventional pick & place. As “smart gripping” solutions, intelligent grippers such as the SCHUNK EGL Profinet enable autonomous handling scenarios. They measure, identify and monitor gripped components and the ongoing production process in real-time. The information recorded by the gripper is passed on to the machine control system and can be simultaneously transferred to higher-level internal and external systems as well as cloud solutions for statistical process analyses.
