Pneumatic grippers make use of compressed air to operate their jaws, which are also occasionally referred to as ‘fingers’. These grippers work similarly to a human hand by holding, gripping and moving an object into its required position.
Grippers are commonly used in automation processes, in which items of all shapes and sizes are moved around by robots to the most suitable location for them. This makes pneumatic gripper cylinders perfect for use in pick and place applications.
Here at Matara, we are able to stock an array of pneumatic gripper cylinders, including angular and parallel gripper cylinders. Parallel gripper cylinders are the most popular and widely used type. This is due to their simplicity and ability to work within a variety of applications and space constraints.
Shop our range of pneumatic gripper cylinders and benefit from a range of features that will work to improve your overall performance and automation. These features include jaws with a higher gripping potential than a human hand whilst also remaining lightweight and small enough in size that they can be used in even the tightest of spaces.
