• Wide size range

Pneumatic Rubber Air Grippers / Picker

BLQ

BLQ is a rubber gripper featuring an inflatable rubber bladder construction that allows each model to manipulate a great number of shapes.

Advantages

  • BLQ-E: Multiple part sizes handled with one gripper, due to its capability to grip around an object that is 40% of its deflated diameter.
  • BLQ-I: can increase its diameter by as much as 1.86 times its deflated shape allowing for one gripper to handle multiple part sizes.
  • Delicate handling by controlling the amount of pressure within the bladder.
  • Soft and secure touch even with heavy loads thanks to the distribution of the holding force over a large surface area.
  • Non-marring contact due to the soft touch of rubber and air, especially suitable for glass and plastic objects.
  • Wide size range, handling objects with inner diameter from 8.5 to 105mm.
  • No lubrication required.
  • Long life even in dusty environments due to lack of seals or bearings.
