Slim Needle Gripper for Border Areas

The new Needle Gripper NGR 12-6 DS A expands the usability range of the ASS Robot-Hand-Kit (EOAT) for FRP handling solutions by its non-stock coating and its possible assambly combinations.

Needle Gripper NGR 12-6 DSThe new needle gripper NGR 12-6 DS A is particularly small and compact. This small needle gripper is only 15mm wide including its body. Six needles are continously adjustable up to 4.5mm penetration depth. Needles and contact surface are non-stick coated. Needle gripper packages with 6, 12, 18, 24 and more needles can be screwed on seamlessly. These needle gripper packages can be combined and controlled via an air circuit, which makes the NGR 12-6 DS a needle gripper usable for many different tasks. Uses range from simple handling of fabrics and sticky FRP materials to precise gripping of narrow border and cutoff areas.

More new gripper components will be shown at K Show 2016:

When handling of non-rigid parts, such as textiles, thermoplastic carbon fiber composites or other tissues and light elements needle grippers are required for handling. Especially in automotive lightweight construction needle grippers are important for handling fiber composites. Therefor we have enlarged our gripper components for FRP handling.

The main focus is on gripper parts that can be implemented in the injection moulding industry in many ways and can especially be used to handle flexible materials and fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP). The new gripper parts fit perfectly in the robot end-of-arm tooling erector kit (EOAT) and can be combined with existing components.

We are looking forward to seeing you at booth 10/J22 in hall 10.
