SMC Pneumatics Position Feedback Sensor for XRAY-S Gripper Series

Zaytran, SMC’s partner in heavy-duty grippers, is now offering a position feedback sensor option for the XRAY-S gripper series. ZAYTRAN’s premier large format gripper, the XRAY-S, has very long strokes. The long strokes enable the XRAY-S to handle a wide variety of parts without having to change tooling. The ability to precisely monitor the jaw’s position greatly increases the gripper’s capabilities. A short stroke gripper that would handle only one part typically would use two barrel proximity sensors to monitor when the gripper is “full open” and “closed on part.” Long stroke grippers, that handle many different parts, typically use …
