As per the report published by the experts; the global grippers market is estimated to grow at a higher CAGR by the completion of the period of forecast. Increasing demand in end-user actions is the leading feature encouraging the development of the global market. Conversely, the magnitude of problems associated with the functioning of pneumatic grippers and unavailability of skillful experts impede the growth of the market.
Primarily the gripper, as the name suggests, is used to grip the portions of work. The gripper fastens and releases the portion by means of opening and closing the knobs. These knobs are power-driven by compressed air or by electricity. These are of dual types – electric powered gripper and pneumatic powered gripper. Both the types find a number of applications.
The classification of electric grippers are the cleaner one as equated to the pneumatic , as they don’t need pipelines of compressed air and so, they save on maintenance and power. The electric grippers are more suitable for use as spot grippers and these are noiseless. They don’t generate sound over the process and are eco-friendly. And so they are employed instead of pneumatic grippers in a number of industries.
An electric gripper is the latest product, as compared to the pneumatic gripper. However, the market for electric gripper is growing at the fastest pace. There are two categories of electric grippers. These consist of three finger electric gripper and two-finger electric gripper. Electric gripper is ecofriendly and considerably more noiseless while functioning, and they are additionally appropriate than pneumatic gripper in several conditions of application.
