An electrical gripper is a specific type of electrical actuator that involves in either parallel or angular motion of surfaces. It is also known as tooling jaws or fingers. It is used as a tool installed on equipment to pick and place work pieces. An electric gripper grasp and releases work pieces by the opening, and closing function of fingers that are powered by electric motors.
Electrical grippers vary in terms of the opening size, the amount of force that can be applied, and the shape of the gripping surfaces. They are used to pick up very small items, such as, a transistor or a chip for a circuit board, to very large items, such as, engine block of a car. Moreover, electrical grippers are also added to industrial robots, so that the robot can interact with other objects.
Electric gripper and pneumatic gripper are two different types of gripper are widely used in numerous automation applications. In comparison to pneumatic gripper, electric gripper are cleaner grippers, need no air ducts, and also save on power and maintenance. Moreover, electric gripper is more suitable to be used as detect grip.
