Gripper Systems

Robust and reliable gripping solutions

Acieta utilizes ‘best in industry” grippers from quality manufacturers like Schunk and On Robot. With Acieta’s expertise in designing and building custom gripper fingers and attachments, you can be assured that you’ll have a robust, reliable gripping solution to fit your application.

The right gripping system increases robotic cell flexibility by supporting varying manufacturing requirements. Coupled with adaptable programming, grippers make it possible to repurpose or redeploy robots in multiple applications.

Astrictive Grippers

Astrictive grippers use magnetism or vacuum to hold workpieces. They work best with flat or smooth surfaces.

Impactive Grippers

Impactive grippers use jaws to grasp and divide into two-jaw and three-jaw options.

Two-jaw grippers

The two-jaw grippers use a pincer movement that closes onto and grips the workpiece. There are designs for both parallel and scissor-style movement and they can be either pneumatic or servo-actuated. These are good for grasping prismatic shapes with flat sides.

Three-jaw grippers

Three-jaw grippers split into two further types. The most widely used look like the jaws of a chuck and grasp short, cylindrical shapes. Three-jaw gripper systems are also used for grasping long shafts, tubes or bars. This type is designed with two fingers opposing a third.
