Gripping – Square Tube System
Square Tube System
Derived from the concept of automotive bodies with rigid occupant cells and flexible crumple zones, the idea of a stable system core and flexible outriggers with the patented TÜNKERS® square tube system has been transferred to handling grippers. The base frame is form-closed and constructed of square tubes. In case of a crash, it contributes to improved geometry stabilisation. Moreover, the tubes are equipped with a hole pattern making the positioning of the connectors via locating pins easier. This option is recommendable for applications in which increased importance is attached to the retention of the geometry of the base frame.
