The Schunk model LMG-64 stainless steel gripper answers the challenge for automation in the food processing industry. It can be used in applications where fresh food products are to be handled automatically, such as in processing and packing lines.
Suitable for processing meat (pork loins etc) and a variety of fresh food products, these polished stainless steel grippers can easily be fitted to robots, handling systems and other automated equipment.
The pneumatically operated LMG-64 provides high gripping forces from a compact 2-finger angular gripper and has a built-in grip force safety device which ensures the gripper does not open if air supply is lost. It incorporates "hygienic design" features such as easy-to-clean, fully sealed mechanics to IP67 and use of lubricants which are food standard compliant.
Electrical monitoring of the gripper open/closed positions is possible via optional magnetic proximity switches and gripping fingers can easily be custom designed to suit the product being handled. The LMG-64 is maitnenance free to 1.5 million cycles and can be cleaned using a wash down hose.
A smaller stacking gripper, model SG-47, which also incorporates hyhienic design features is available for food packing applications.
