Parallel Grippers

MAGNUM

Magnum grippers shown in both dirty and clean applications.

Welding Environments to Class One Clean Room Parallel Grippers

MAGNUM parallel grippers are universally applicable “out-of-the-box”. The use of third-generation ZAYTRAN technology and the selection of super tough, corrosive resistant materials allows the MAGNUM parallel grippers to efficiently serve day-to-day as well as tough, nearly impossible parallel gripper applications. Examples of the range of parallel gripper environments include welding, grinding, machining, clean room, epitaxial wafer fabrication, hard disk fabrication, D.I. water and food processing.

Patented Synchronous Technology - Extended Life

The synchronous MAGNUM parallel gripper utilizes ZAYTRAN US patent number 4591199. The force and synchronizing double helix are independent systems. The double helix works only to center the part to 0.025 mm (0.0010”). All of the gripping force is provided by two pistons that are driven pneumatically. The independence of the force and synchronization systems provides precision over the typical 10,000,000+ cycle life of the parallel gripper. In non-abusive applications the technology may deliver 20,000,000 or more parallel gripper cycles. At end of life many MAGNUM parallel grippers can be rebuilt.

Double Sealed For Superior Integrity

The magnum parallel gripper mechanism is double sealed to assure that the mechanism is isolated from the environment. In clean rooms and food processing this ensures environmental integrity. In harsh environments the double seals protect the parallel gripper from contamination that could lead to failure.

Clean & Dirty Purge System

Another unique feature of the MAGNUM family is a dual usage purge system (patent pending) that is part of every parallel gripper. The purge system facilitates use in clean rooms (CLASS ONE clean rooms, an independent Lab report is available) and very dirty environments.

In clean rooms the purge system is evacuated. Any contaminants from the pneumatic system that pass the seals of the gripper are eliminated from the environment.
In very dirty environments the purge system is pressurized. Any debris that attempts to make its way under the parallel gripper slide bearings is cleared away by the pressure at the purge port.

The Ultimate Materials Force/Weight>200

All materials of the MAGNUM parallel gripper are designed to eliminate maintenance and assure that the gripper functions in harsh environments. There are two material versions of the MAGNUM parallel gripper: The MAGNUM-AL and the MAGNUM-PET parallel grippers. Each was developed to extend the out-of-the-box applicability of the MAGNUM technology. The design and material selection allow the MAGNUM to provide Force/Weight ratios in excess of 200.
