The EGL from SCHUNK is an extremely compact and powerful servo gripper. It has flexible control of gripping force, speed, and position, which makes it well suited for pharmaceutical, testing, laboratory, and assembly applications.


The EGL has on-board power and control electronics so there are no other external devices needed to operate the gripper. It is powered by 24 VDC and can communicate by Profibus-DP or CAN-bus. There is an electric brake which allows for position maintenance and a pseudo absolute encoder function.
Standard industrial connectors allow for quick and easy setup and installation.

The EGL weighs just 1.8 kg, but it can generate up to 600 N of grip force which allows it to easily grip work pieces weighing 3 kg. This power to weight ratio combined with a stroke of 49 mm per jaw, makes the EGL one of the most powerful and flexible servo grippers on the market.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
