Hollow glass/Bottling/Handling/Gripping

Our different grippers tubes have been designed to optimise handling of glass bottles and jars during palletizing and depalletizing operations.

Our very wide range adapts to all shapes and sizes as well as to all your support and handling robots, and automatic or semi-automatic palletizers.

Our grippers tubes are made of vulcanised rubber-coated fabric to give them a perfect grip, optimised life span despite high rates and a great variety of shapes. Their design allows very fast assembly and disassembly, simplified usage and very low maintenance.

Our range allows for handling full layers as well as single or multiple rows.

Our knowledge of materials and the constraints of our customers encourage us to continue development of our line: GGW clamp for a universal bottle neck grip, pneumatic grippers tubes provided with an FDA approved coating.

Our standard lengths and diameters as well as custom made products and solutions will meet all your gripper requests.
