Festo’s HPPF diminutive flat parallel gripper is designed to deliver great force in tight spaces. HPPF ranges from 19 mm to 41 mm among its four sizes: 8, 12, 16, and 20. The stroke ranges from a narrow 8 mm to a wide 80 mm, with gripping forces from 60 N to 377 N. These specs make the new HPPF ideal for space-constrained applications in small parts and electronics assembly.

Twin piston rack and pinion motion and ball bearing guides give these units high accuracy – ≤ 0.03 mm to ≤ 0.06 mm – and maintenance-free, long-service life. Twin pistons provide these compact units with a high grip force. Units are symmetrical for flexibility in mounting. Both sides feature a C-slot for sensors. Machine builders can adjust the stroke and there is an elastic cushioning option. Weight is exceptionally low – ideal for today’s smaller footprint, more sustainable machines – 68 g for the smallest unit and up to 1,326 g for the largest.
