Universal remote gripper for small boxes and special applications

Stay always flexible with the A01 remote gripper

Wälischmiller Engineering A01 Series universal grippers are ideally suited to use in shielded cells and boxes. Thanks to different versions, the A01 series can be used in research as well as in diagnostic production or therapy for handling radioactive substances. Log grippers are usually installed in screened stoppers and ball bushing.

The A01 Series: The Swiss army knife of remote grippers

Universal remote grippers have a simple, ergonomically optimised handle in anodised aluminium. A range of gripping tongs or gripper jaw attachments can be changed quickly and easily thanks to the sophisticated locking mechanism. This makes them ideally suited for picking up various objects. Yes, for low weights, the A01 range is customisable for almost any application. Try it out!
