Gripper Fingers made of Plastic, Steel or Aluminum - at the Press of a Button.

Designed and ordered in 15 minutes.

The world's first fully automatic 3D design tool for manufactured gripper fingers.

The license-free, browser-based web tool SCHUNK eGRIP from the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems reduces the design and ordering time for customized gripper fingers to only 15 minutes.

Only minimal data and a few steps are needed. Then SCHUNK eGRIP automatically designs custom gripper fingers with the optimal 3D contour and prepares a detailed offer including the price and delivery time. SCHUNK eGRIP can calculate even complex geometries very quickly.

You have the choice: order immediately or request a quotation by e-mail.

This is how it works:

  1. Simply upload the STEP or STL file of the workpiece.
  2. Select the SCHUNK gripper
  3. Select a suitable finger blank and configure it

SCHUNK eGRIP pays off

 

Reduce time and costs online. Benefit from enormous time and cost advantages. The more complex a component is, the more costly is the conventional design of the fingers. This is not the case with SCHUNK eGRIP. Instead of 2 to 8 hours of design time per finger pair, with SCHUNK eGRIP you can design a finger pair in 10 minutes. You can also save on quote and delivery times.

Gripper Fingers made of Steel or Aluminum with integrated Lightweight Structure.

Weight reductions up to 50 Percent.

You choose the material
You can freely choose between the materials which are individually adapted to each application. With the SCHUNK eGRIP ordering system, you can also order gripper fingers made of aluminum (AISi10Mg, 50 µm) or stainless steel (1.4404, 30 µm or 50 µm). For the design of metal gripper fingers, SCHUNK eGRIP is using the technological potential of selective laser melting for optimal weigh reduction and therefore saves weight.

Your advantage:

  • Weight and volume reduction of up to 50% due to automatic saving of material. Hollow and grid structures are used  for design.
  • Cost-reduction and shorter production time due to material reduction and the use of state-of-the-art production processes.
  • Implementation of complex finger contours for form-fit gripping, which cannot be conventionally machined or just in a very time-consuming way.
