Modular Gripper System PXT

800 x 600 mm
25 kg

The modular gripping system PXT gives you the flexibility you need to design optimal gripping systems for lightweight robots. You can design solutions for a wide range of handling processes with just a few standardized components. Thanks to the internal vacuum line, your solutions are designed for maximum flexibility and effectiveness. Assembly and conversion are simple, quick and require only a few tools.
