Festo DHxS parallel, 3-point, radial and angle pneumatic grippersFesto DHxS parallel, 3-point, radial and angle pneumatic grippers feature overload protection and integrated sensor slots. Compression spring-assisted gripping force retention provides security in the event of a pressure failure, while T-slot guides increase the torque resistance of the gripper jaws. A double-acting piston drive gives the grippers stable kinematics and repetition accuracy. A range of mounting options, gripper sizes and stroke lengths is available.
