[May 2021] Finger change at the press of a button
SCHUNK is expanding its range for the rapid change of gripper fingers. While an Allen key was still required for the proven SCHUNK BSWS jaw quick-change system, all that is needed with the new manual BSWS-M system is a push of a button to mechanically unlock the top jaw and pull it instantly off the gripper. Moreover, a new jaw is attached just as quickly and easily, and connected to the gripper at the simple push of a button. This means that the tool-free jaw quick-change system reduces set-up times to a minimum, while also increasing productivity and flexibility of the entire automated system. As an additional mounting aid, optionally available alignment pins and a corresponding alignment pin hole can now be used to ensure that the fingers can only be mounted in the correct position in the case of asymmetrical finger pairs, for example.
