Introducing the
NSR-PG-10-20
Precision Parallel Gripper

Highest precision for intricate part handling, measurement and assembly

 

Smallest size and light weight for fast, precise movements

 

Teachable finger positions

 

Absolute position sensor internal to the gripper

 

Quick connect to UR tool I/O port
no cables along the robot arm
no external controller

 

Easy-to-use URCaps plugin included

Compatible with
UR3, UR5, UR10 ROBOTS

Fast setup, maximum flexibility

The NSR-PG is an easy-to-use, plug-and-play solution for collaborative robots. It is agile enough to handle many different tasks involving small part gripping, measurement, sorting and assembly.

It installs in less than 30 minutes using the UR robot output flange, tool I/O port, and URCaps plugin on the teach pendant. Your production team can minimize set-up time and make quick changes on the factory floor.

Power and control with
just one cable. 
Fast and easy connection to the UR Tool I/O port. No converters needed.

 

Simple installation

To install the gripper, simply mount it to your UR robot tool flange and connect the single cable to the UR tool I/O port.

Power and digital commands are received through the robot 8-pin tool I/O interface. No external wires or separate electronics are needed.

 

Interchangeable fingers

The NSR-PG ships with factory fingers installed so you can get right to work. These handle workpieces up to approximately 60 mm and 100 grams.

Fingers are easily interchangeable using the standard flange interface with a precision, pin-located finger reference mounting surface.

You can modify the standard fingers or create custom ones optimized to your parts. Use our CAD models as a reference design or contact us for custom fingers.

Fingers are easily interchangeable.

Teachable finger positions

Manually move fingers to the desired position and set them using the teach pendant. This process is familiar to anyone who has used a UR robot in teach mode.

Position is repeatable to 0.03 mm.

Setting finger open and closed positions to match your workpiece lets you minimize the finger motion (stroke) for each operation, saving time and energy.

Programmable speed and force

Grip force and speed control are programmable to handle delicate or rigid parts. The gripper has speeds up to 20 mm/second and grip force up to 10 Newtons.

Absolute position feedback

An internal high-resolution position sensor provides absolute position of the fingers with resolution of 10 µm. This position information is continuously available to the software, enabling decision-making in automation scripts.

Engineered for precision

The NSR-PG is a compact electric gripper with a rugged, no-maintenance design. It features a brushless DC motor, internal position sensor, and a proprietary motion control system for fast and precise motion.
