Precision Gripper for Heavy Objects

Zaytran Sigma grippers from SMC were developed for applications that impart high acceleration to heavy objects or require extremely long, precisely positioned jaws.  These light weight grippers are capable of delivering gripping force in excess of 700 pounds and tolerate jaw torque of 1,000 foot pounds.

A unique feature of the Sigma gripper is the patented synchronous technology.  The synchronous technology uses a synchronizing double helix that is independent from the gripper force system.  The double helix's only function is to center the part to +/-0.001 inches.  By keeping the force and synchronization systems independent the Sigma provides this level of precision over the 10,000,000+ cycle of the unit.

Cv Calculator for Valve Sizing

A flash based pneumatic valve sizing calculator has been posted under the links section of our website.  This sizing calculator allows you to determine your valve Cv requirement.  Enter your application requirements and the calculator will give you everything you need to determine the correct valve requirement for your application including Cv, cylinder velocity, flow required, extend force, and retract force.  By design, you can easily tweak values to see what changes in variables do to your application requirements.
