THE VALUE PROMISE – CONSISTENT AND WITHOUT FINE PRINT
Other manufacturers offer a 36-month warranty, but exclude wear parts and parts that make contact with the workpiece.

This applies to ALL PARTS without fine print, regardless of the number of cycles! Our products equip your system to make money, 24/7.
STEEL LINEAR GUIDE
The gripper’s Steel Linear Guide combines proven linear guide method with the very latest sealing and coating technology. As a result, you benefit from the most robust grippers currently available on the market in combination with corrosion protection and protection class IP64. Producing up to 30 million cycles without maintenance is no problem for this gripper.
ALUMINUM LINEAR GUIDE
They are the best alternative as they technically outperform all T-slot grippers and are at least on par with multi-tooth guided grippers. As “everyday grippers”, they are enough for handling most applications yet offer 15 million cycles of maintenance-free performance.
With maintenance-free performance of up to 15 million gripping cycles, the AL grippers with their Aluminum Linear Guide offer a maintenance interval up to 50 percent higher than commonly available grippers.
The Steel Linear Guide premium grippers exceed these values, providing a maintenance interval up to 30 million cycles, and thus stand for long-term use and maximum system availability.
