Clean and maintenance-free: Gripper for plastic barrels

Advantages: low slide resistance, clean, maintenance-free

The Task: Mechanical grippers for safe movement of plastic barrels must be horizontally adjustable in order to accommodate barrels of different diameters. The adjustment of the gripper is motorized. The motor also holds the cassettes in position and secures the system against unwanted displacement.

The Solution: Franke aluminum linear guides of size 25 are used in two-lane arrangement. Their smooth running ensures fast movement and requires minimal drive power. This allows the motors to be designed small and energy-saving. The encapsulated rollers are life lubricated and thus maintenance-free
over the entire mileage. The grease remains in the rollers and prevents pollution of the environment.
