WSG 32

Network-enabled Compact Gripper

The servo-electric parallel gripper WSG 32 offers an integrated control unit ready for Ethernet, combined with compact dimensions and high performance. This is why the WSG 32 is suitable for challenging tasks in robotics and automation. Highly dynamic grasping operations and maximum precision are guaranteed by the brushless electric drive. Speed and grasping force are controlled continuously, which is why the WSG 32 is made for precise handling in every situation.

Automatic grip detection

The WSG 32 brings reliability to your handling process

By con­ti­nuous­ly moni­to­ring the fin­ger posi­ti­on and grip­ping force, the WSG 32 auto­ma­ti­cal­ly detec­ts con­tact with the work­pie­ce and ensu­res a safe hand­ling throughout the who­le pro­duc­tion pro­cess. This frees the sys­tem con­trols of any grip­ping func­tions – exter­nal posi­tio­ning swit­ches are no lon­ger necessa­ry. Her­e­by pro­cess sim­pli­ci­ty is achie­ved with mini­mal effort on inte­gra­ti­on.

Integrated control unit with Ethernet TCP/IP

Network-enabled control unit

The con­trol unit is com­ple­te­ly inte­gra­ted into the WSG 32, inclu­ding power sta­ge and net­work inter­face. The WSG 32 is con­trol­led using Ether­net TCP/IP or PROFINET (optio­nal) and has an optio­nal CAN-Bus inter­face. With its sepa­ra­te power sup­plies for logic and dri­ve, safe tor­que off (STO) fea­ture can easi­ly imple­men­ted. Thus, in case of an emer­gen­cy shut­down of the machi­ne, the gripper’s con­trol unit will still be online while the motor is gua­ran­te­ed tor­que-free. Soft­ware, con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons and custo­mer files are stored on an exch­an­ge­ab­le memo­ry card for easy migra­ti­on.

High performance servo drive

Only the best for your handling process

The WSG 32 com­bi­nes light­weight design with long ser­vice life and high pre­cisi­on. The cen­tre­pie­ce of the WSG 32 grip­per is a brush­less pre­cisi­on dri­ve with an enor­mous power den­si­ty. The fin­gers are dri­ven by a belt, which gua­ran­tees a syn­chro­nous move­ment of the fin­gers even under harsh con­di­ti­ons. A belt of stain­less steel dra­pes the mecha­ni­cal parts from dust. This redu­ces emis­si­ons of par­ti­cles and sim­pli­fies clea­ning of the WSG 32 – an abso­lu­te must in phar­maceu­tics and labo­ra­to­ry auto­ma­ti­on.

Built-in sensor port

Hassle-free connection of sensor fingers

The WSG 32 offers an elec­tro­nic data inter­face to con­nect sen­sor fin­gers wit­hout the hass­le of exter­nal cables. The­re are two sen­sor ports loca­ted at the base jaws that are direc­t­ly con­nec­ted to the WSG 32‘s inter­nal con­trol unit. With this novel inter­face, sen­sor signals can be direc­t­ly inte­gra­ted into the gras­ping pro­cess. This enab­les you to bring sen­sing intel­li­gence into your grip­ping pro­cess while main­tai­ning inter­fe­ring con­tours at a mini­mum.

Precise force control

Increase gripping precision using force sensing fingers

Several types of fin­gers with or wit­hout inte­gra­ted sen­sor tech­no­lo­gy are pro­vi­ded. For examp­le, the high-reso­lu­ti­on tac­tile sen­sor fin­ger WSG-DSA can resol­ve the pres­su­re dis­tri­bu­ti­on on the work­pie­ce. The force sen­sing fin­ger WSG-FMF mea­su­res the true grip­ping force direc­t­ly at the work­pie­ce. Inte­gra­ted strain gau­ges ensu­re a high sen­sing pre­cisi­on. Using the gripper’s sen­sor port, the mea­su­red force is direc­t­ly used as a feed­back signal for the clo­sed-loop force con­trol. The WSG 32 can the­re­fo­re con­trol the effec­tive grip­ping force with high pre­cisi­on and allows a secu­re and reli­able hand­ling even with high­ly sen­si­ti­ve parts.

Scripting support

Extend your grippers’s capabilities

Would you like to adjust your grip­per to match your spe­ci­fic app­li­ca­ti­on? Not a pro­blem, sin­ce the WSG 32 con­tains a power­ful scrip­ting exten­si­on that lets you access a num­ber of inter­nal func­tions. Using the script edi­tor that is inte­gra­ted into the web-based con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on inter­face, you can com­for­ta­b­ly wri­te your own pro­grams and save them onto the WSG 32’s microSD memo­ry card. Spe­cial move­ment pro­files as well as expan­si­ons of the con­trol set or the addi­ti­on of extra sen­sors into the grip­ping pro­cess are all pos­si­ble.
