Automation and assembly systems often require precise, product specific end effectors. Schwerdtle manufactures custom-molded, silicone-bonded-to-metal, product specific grippers. Our silicone “finger tips” are heat-resistant and will not mar fragile plastic parts. We can work from your gripper design, most CAD files accepted, or we can help design a gripper from your actual part surface files
Commonly, we add threaded mounting holes, position pin holes, air or suction holes, or specialty coatings such as hardcoat anodizing. We’ve even developed a dovetail mounting system allowing for quick changeovers, accurate mounting and positioning, and longer lasting grippers.
