Parallel Long Stroke Gripper



The appearance of the GEH6000IL electric parallel long stroke gripper is characterised by straight edges and a purist design. This minimalist approach corresponds to a high economic and environmental standard, which is evident in the use of fully recycled aluminium and of steel which was produced to one third with solar energy on the one hand, and in energy efficiency during operation on the other. The DC motor and control module have been developed with a view to low power consumption as well.
