AGI O-ring Seal Assembly Gripper by AGI American Grippers Inc
Automated seal /o-ring assembly from small to large O ring placement applications. Spread and place seals with these dual motion automatic o-ring placement assembly machines. Two sizes available, one for handling up to 3 inch I.D. AGP-6-OR (six jaw) and a larger unit to handle up to 12 inch I.D. AGP-8-OR (eight jaw) multi motion through-hole parallel grippers.
Both are designed to facilitate part ejection and part seating. The grippers are ideal when an ejector is needed after part placement or when seal is to be placed down a long shaft.
AGP-8-OR a sixteen jaw o-ring installation gripper has independent spreading, ejector movements and has a 1.5 inch diameter through hole.
This pneumatic gripper has two independent pistons, the spreading jaws are double acting and the other ejector jaws are single acting. When air pressure is applied to the first piston, eight parallel jaws expanding .55 inch each spread the o-ring providing an octagon shape. The octagonally stretched O-ring requires less overall expansion and considerably less deformation during assembly insertion process. The opening stroke can be precisely adjusted using the set -screw so there isnít over expansion. After the o-ring is expanded and over the part, air pressure is applied to the second piston. This causes the ejector jaws to push forward .5 inch and push off the O-Ring seal from the spreading jaws, and onto the part being assembled or installed. The O-Ring grippers can be tooled to accommodate all types of rings, the smallest would be the smallest you can make your tooling jaws to fit the inside diameter and the largest is approximately twelve inch diameter depending on the cross section. End of stroke sensing is available for both the spreading and ejecting jaws. The size of the AGP-8-OR unit is 5 inches diameter by 5 inches tall. Spreading jaws have 200 lbs. force per jaw @80 psi and ejector jaws have 320 lbs. @ 80 psi. The smaller unit (AGP-6-OR) is 2.5 inches diameter by 2.7 inches tall. Spreading Jaws have 62 lbs force @80 psi and Stripping Jaws have 80 lbs @ 80 psi. Both available from stock. Two and 3D cad available on our web site. www.agi-automation.com
