High performance pneumatic clamps for automation and robotics

Elesa has announced a partnership with Misati, covering the latters’ high-performance pneumatic clamps for work holding or the transportation of machinery/assemblies in manufacturing operations

The new clamps are designed for robotic use and Elesa says that they are easy to install, durable  and well proven. They are also fast and reliable in operation, supported by simple power and control connections which enable rapid installation and setup. Typical applications cited by Elesa include warehousing, welding stations, framing and assembly stations, special machines, tooling, jigs and fixture manufacture, dies and mould making.

Nigel Pritchett, Elesa’s MD in the UK observes “The strong clamping action of the Misati range features mechanical interlock at closure with an integral, non reversible ramp mechanism which takes over when the jaws are closed. This ensures that peak loads are directly transferred to the body structure of the clamp and are not reliant on the pneumatic pressure.”

Pneumatic clamps from the range are specialised to match various industrial applications such as punching, welding, fastening/assembly and painting, with modular accessories that are said to be convenient and readily interchangeable. These make fitting and adjustment straightforward, including gripper fingers for sheets or delicate materials, plus irregular shapes, hollow objects/tubes - also visually indicating open/closed/ready sensors. The choice of cylinders and matching accessories suits engineering industries such as automotive, rail, special vehicles, electronics and plastics production. They also work well in the wider fields of food processing, building construction, furniture manufacture, agriculture, chemical processing and pharmaceutical production as well as the medical industries according to Elesa.

Misati pneumatic cylinders feature a double acting operation in diameters of 20mm, 32mm, 40mm and 50mm with three arm configurations dependent on the clamping arrangement required. The range is defined by high holding force, small size and reduced air consumption, plus a 7 year/20 Million cycle guarantee. For more information click here.
