Non-compliance may result in severe injuries!

These installation and operating instructions are intended for installation and maintenance technicians as well as design engineers requiring the gripper for applications. Please read through all of the installation and operating instructions carefully before start-up and pay special attention to the following hazard warnings and notes. 1. Installation, commissioning, maintenance and repairs may only be performed by qualified experts in accordance with the installation and operating instructions. 2. The gripper is state-of-the-art. It is fitted to industrial machines and is used to hold workpieces. The following are examples of situations in which the gripper may cause a hazard: • The gripper is not properly installed, used or maintained. • The gripper is not used for its intended purpose. • Local regulations (legislation, ordinances, guidelines), such as the EC Machinery Directive, accident prevention regulations and the installation and operating instructions, are not observed. 3. The gripper may be used only in accordance with its proper use and technical data. ZIMMER GmbH shall accept no liability for any damage caused by improper use. 4. Any use other than the intended use requires written approval from ZIMMER GmbH. 5. Do not reach into the operating range of the gripper. 6. Make sure that the transmission lines are disconnected before you install, retool, maintain or repair the gripper. 7. In case of maintenance, conversion or expansion work, remove the gripper from the machine and perform the work outside the danger zone. 8. When commissioning or testing, make sure that the gripper cannot be actuated by mistake. 9. Modifications to the gripper, such as adding drilled holes or threads, may be made only with prior approval from ZIMMER GmbH. 10.Comply with the prescribed maintenance intervals and specifications for compressed-air quality; also refer to the "Maintenance" section. Please contact our Service hotline for this purpose. 11.Use of the gripper under extreme conditions, such as aggressive liquids and abrasive dusts, is subject to prior 4 1 approval from ZIMMER GmbH. - 2 0 - 9 1 0 2 / N E a / 9 8 2 0 0 C O D 3 D ZIMMER GmbH ● Im Salmenkopf 5 ● 77866 Rheinau, Germany ● Phone: +49 7844 9138 0 ● Fax: +49 7844 9138 80 ● zimmer-group.de INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS: 2-jaw parallel gripper, pneumatic, GPH8000 series 3 Proper use NOTE: The GPH8000 series gripper should only be used in its original state with its original accessories, without any unauthorized changes and within the scope of its defined parameters for use. ZIMMER GmbH shall accept no liability for any damage caused by improper use. The gripper is designed for operation with compressed air only. It is not suited for operation with other media such as liquids or gases. The gripper is used as defined under "Proper use" in enclosed rooms for temporarily gripping, handling and holding workpieces. It is not suitable for clamping workpieces during a machining process or for direct contact with perishable goods. Proper use of the gripper also includes the forces and torques that may be acting in addition to the gripping force (see product data sheets at zimmer-group.de). 4 Personnel qualification Installation, commissioning and maintenance may only be performed by qualified personnel. They must have read and understood the installation and operating instructions in full. 5 Function The gripper has a double-sided ventilated pneumatic piston. Alternate ventilation causes the jaw to move sideways. The energy supply can be made one-way or two-way. The GPH8000 series gripper is available in three versions: • Synchronous without clamp • Synchronous with one clamp • Asynchronous with two clamps One or more clamping elements are used to secure the positioning of the gripper jaws.

CAUTION: Non-compliance may result in damage to the system • Risk of injury in case of unexpected movement of the gripper when pneumatic energy is connected. • Switch off the pneumatic energy before all work. • Secure the pneumatic circuit against being switched on unintentionally. • Check the pneumatic circuit for any existing residual energy; bleed if necessary. WARNING: • Risk of injury in case of unexpected movement of the machine or system into which the gripper is to be installed. • Switch off the power supply to the machine before all work. • Secure the machine against being switched on unintentionally. • Check the machine for any residual energy. ⇨ The opening pressure for the gripper and the installed clamp amounts to at least 4 bar! 6.1 Installing the gripper The gripper may only be mounted on a surface intended for this purpose. The mounting surface must correspond to the necessary flatness. Depending on the design size, cylinder screws from M3 to M16 and of strength class 8.8 are used. The following tightening torques must be observed during installation: Screw size M3 M4 M5 M6 M8 M10 M12 M14 M16 Tightening torques [Nm] 1,3 2,9 6,0 10,2 24,9 49,5 86,3 138,0 214,9 The following work steps are to be carried out to install the gripper: ► Insert centering sleeves or cylindrical pins (optional) into the appropriate fits on the gripper. ► Position the gripper on the intended mounting surface using the centering sleeves. ► Fasten the gripper using cylinder screws. • When doing so, use threadlocker to secure the cylinder screws. • Threadlocker: Use a threadlocker suitable for the application area. ► Mount the pneumatic connection. • Close off unused pneumatic connections with dummy plugs. 6.2 Checking operational readiness After the gripper has been properly installed, use the following characteristics to check whether it is ready to be operated: ► Look and listen for leaks in the pneumatic connections. ► Check all mounting screws for their prescribed tightening torque. ► Look and listen for leaks in the pressurized gripper. ► Check to make sure the gripping process is functioning properly by opening and closing the gripper manually. 4 1 - 2 0 - 9 1 0 2 / N E a / 9 8 2 0 0 C O D 5 D ZIMMER GmbH ● Im Salmenkopf 5 ● 77866 Rheinau, Germany ● Phone: +49 7844 9138 0 ● Fax: +49 7844 9138 80 ● zimmer-group.de INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS: 2-jaw parallel gripper, pneumatic, GPH8000 series 6.3 Using the stroke adjustment screw Synchronous: ► Set the first side. ► Move to the limit stop. ► Set the second side. • Secure the stroke adjustment screw using a threadlocker suitable for such use. Asynchronous: ► Each stroke can be set independent from one another. • Secure the stroke adjustment screw using a threadlocker suitable for such use. 6.3.1 Installation of stroke limitation at the factory The adjustment screws and end stops 3 for the stroke setting are installed at the factory. Thus, the two end positions can be reduced by up to 40 mm. 6.3.1 Adapter piece installation for stroke limitation If you require a larger reduction of the stroke limitation, the stroke can be further reduced by the use of additional spacers. An example depiction of an adapter piece 9 can be viewed in the following image. ⌦ Inner installation of the adapter piece 9for the inner end position. • Secure the stroke adjustment screw and spacer with a screw locking device suitable for the application. 4 1 - 2 0 - 9 1 0 2 / N E a / 9 8 2 0 0 C O D 6 D ZIMMER GmbH ● Im Salmenkopf 5 ● 77866 Rheinau, Germany ● Phone: +49 7844 9138 0 ● Fax: +49 7844 9138 80 ● zimmer-group.de INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS: 2-jaw parallel gripper, pneumatic, GPH8000 series An example depiction of an adapter piece 9 can be viewed in the following image. ⌦ Outer installation of the adapter piece 9for the outer end position. • Secure the stroke adjustment screw and spacer with a screw locking device suitable for the application. 6.4 Installing the example GPH8000 The drawing of an GPH8000 is shown as an example in the adjacent image.
