Mounting Configuration Options

There are three mounting configuration options available: D90, S180 and D180. The D90 configuration (left) contains two grippers that are mounting at 90° with respect to one another, that are great for loading and unloading a machine vise in a CNC mill. The D180 configuration (right) contains two grippers that are mounted 180° with respect to one another on a boom arm. The S180 configuration (center) is a single gripper version of the D180. Both of the D180 and S180 kits are ideal for tending CNC lathes.

Choose the Right Gripper for Your Application

Each mounting configuration is offered with either 2-jaw parallel grippers (DH44xx)* or 3-jaw concentric style grippers (TH54xx)*.

2-Jaw Parallel Gripper Options Available (DH44xx)

3-Jaw Concentric Gripper Options Available (TH54xx)

Adjustable Gripper Fingers Included with Each Kit

These machine tending kits are delivered with stock gripper fingers that allow the kits to be easily applied to a wide variety of application. The 2-jaw gripper fingers can be used for both inner and outer gripping scenarios and features 12 mounting positions, along with multiple grip surface options (blank, HNBR pad & rubber pad).
