Product Spotlight July: The Piezo Gripper
The positioning or movement of fragile materials, small parts or micro systems needs actuators that are capable of precise and repeatable gripping motions without causing damage. The Piezo Gripper by piezosystem jena is an ideal system for such purposes. It can be used for manipulating micro optics (pick and place), sorting and assembling of fiber optics, precision manufacturing or handling of biological probes, among many others.
The Piezo Gripper has a compact casing design and is able to do a grip motion of up to 300 µm. The used force of the gripper differs. Gap width is adjustable as well making this gripper extremely flexible in use. Additionally, piezosystem jena is offering customers the possibility to completely customize the Piezo Gripper according to their specific needs and requirements. Here, our skilled engineers are happy to advise you and suggest an optimal solution that is best for your application.
There are two variants of the gripper: The Piezo Gripper is ideal for handling small or even micro parts in a research or industry environment (e.g. robotics). The second version, the Fiber Gripper, is specially designed for sorting and coupling of fiber optics.
Depending on your application, there are multiple options for amplifiers available. Our sales and technical support team will advise on the optimal choice for you.
