Made of recycled aluminium and partly made of steel produced with solar power, the GEP5000 electric parallel gripper combines high performance with an economical and ecological approach. This ecological claim is reflected in energy efficient operation. The brushless DC motor and the integrated control module have been specifically designed for low power consumption. A distinct form and colour scheme divides the product into the control module, with its ergonomic user interface, and the housing.
Statement by the Jury
The design of the parallel gripper GEP5000 succeeds in consistently implementing the topic of sustainability in terms of material and design, while, at the same time, increasing efficiency.
