Pneumatic grippers

Standardized products for diverse handling applications

Our pneumatic grippers are at the heart of many automated processes that require precision, speed and reliability. Designed to support a wide range of applications across multiple industries, our grippers offer a unique combination of strength, flexibility and control.

The G-GP parallel grippers and G-GZ angular grippers are characterized by their compact and robust design. The grippers are available in five different sizes.

Since 2009, we have offered our pneumatic internal grippers G-GI and the G-GIS since 2016. These grippers are available in one mm increments from 5 to 20 mm for a total of 16 different sizes. The internal grippers are a unique industrial handling technology.

GRIP grippers have proven themselves for 35 years at well-known companies.


Types of pneumatic grippers

With a focus on innovation and quality, GRIP's pneumatic grippers are a reliable choice for companies looking to increase efficiency and maximize productivity in their automated processes. Discover our diverse selection of products.

GP Parallel gripper

GRIP's parallel grippers operate via an efficient linear jaw movement that enables precise handling. These grippers are powered by a double-acting cylinder that is operated by compressed air. This system ensures a reliable and powerful movement of the gripper jaws - ideal for a variety of applications.

The special feature of these grippers lies in the unique way that they convert movement: two angled springs that grip into the grooves of the bolts play a key role. This design makes it possible to convert the vertical movement of the cylinder into a precise opposing horizontal movement of the gripper jaws. This innovative mechanism ensures exceptionally fine control and precision during the gripping process.

The combination of compressed air operation and mechanical conversion, enable GRIP's parallel grippers to offer an optimal solution for applications that require both strength and sensitivity.

GZ Angular Gripper

The Angular grippers are driven by a double-acting cylinder that is activated by compressed air. This configuration ensures a powerful yet precise drive movement that is suitable for a wide range of applications.

A unique feature of our angular grippers is the implemented eccentric mechanism. This not only ensures an extraordinarily long service life of the components, but also ensures a constant gripping strength. This is essential for applications where consistent performance and reliability are a priority.

In contrast to our parallel grippers, which use an opposing horizontal movement, the gripping force lock on the angular grippers is exclusive to the closing version. This feature allows the gripping force to be maintained even in the event of a loss of pressure or other malfunction, providing an additional measure of safety.

GI Internal Gripper

The inflatable bellows gripper is specially designed for internal gripping applications and has a unique functionality. The gripper plunges into bore holes and uses innovative technology to securely grasp objects.

The functionality of the GI internal gripper is based on a silicone membrane that expands when pressure is applied. This expansion increases the outer diameter of the gripper and enables it to adhere to an inner wall through the use of friction. This method allows objects to be gripped safely and without damage, which is particularly advantageous in precision-critical applications.

Another outstanding feature of the GI internal gripper is its ability to automatically retract when air pressure is removed. The elastic properties of the silicone membrane cause it to automatically retract into the gripper housing. This ensures a smooth transition between gripping and releasing, making the use of the gripper particularly efficient and user-friendly.

The GI internal gripper from GRIP is the ideal choice for applications where precision, safety and protection of the materials are crucial.

GIS Internal Gripper Short

Imagine if you had an alternative to the proven GI internal gripper that can dive deeper into the borehole - our GIS, internal gripper short, from GRIP allows that. This further development is characterized by a specially designed gripping zone for more demanding applications.

Just like the proven GI internal gripper, the GIS internal gripper also plunges into bores and increases its outer diameter by expanding a silicone membrane as soon as pneumatic pressure is applied to it. This intelligent design allows the gripper to frictionally adhere to the bore wall and thus grasp objects safely and precisely.

The modified gripping zone of the GIS internal gripper makes it possible to dive deeper into the borehole, which is particularly advantageous for complex or heavier pieces.
