What is the service life of the FIPA grippers?


The service life of a gripper is dependent on the application to a large extent (property of the work-piece, cycle time, ambient temperature, etc).

However, using the Hartcoat® coated aluminum housing and the Hartcoat® coated gripper jaws, the FIPA grippers have demonstrated that they are highly robust and wear-resistant. As a result, they often have significantly longer service life, as compared to others made of steel or brass, which are completely uncoated or those whose housing alone is coated.
