Metal Backed Rubber Gripper Pads

Rubber to metal cured pads provide a flexible protective surface for a variety of clamping, mounting, part handling, and conveying applications. Metal backing supports this surface and provides a robust and stable structure for fastening the pad to tooling or other machinery surfaces.  During forming, the rubber is fused to the plate with a bond stronger than the rubber itself, thus ensuring the rubber and metal will not separate—the perfect blend of metal and rubber.

Compliance Devices

Remote Center of Compliance (RCC) devices correct for part-to-hole misalignment and reduce insertion forces in part handling applications. Also an excellent choice for non-robotic applications, where slight flex is helpful during part handling and placement.  Wherever misalignment is present, an RCC can help.
