Technical characteristics

Our grippers are manufactured with polymer coated fabric substrate and are vulcanized in manufacturing, making them ultra strong and guaranteeing that they will have a long lifespan.

Several inflated diameters are available: in standard sizes we offer 28mm, 33mm and 38mm. For any other diameter, please consult us.

Standard GGS grippers are 1340mm long, have 3 M10x70mm attachment points (centre spacing between attachments is 510mm) and have a 300mm long supply hose.

We also produce GGLS grippers 1470mm long or with other lengths for non-standard pallets.


Our GGS grippers can move rows and layers of bottles. Upon request they can be supplied with handles, control buttons, pressure gauge and mounting rings. They consist of 2 sides connected by plates with M10 threaded fasteners. Equipped with cylinders that inflate inwards, this clever gripper has an adjustable height and centre spacings, a major asset when you want to limit handling time. Very easy to handle, it lets you move your bottles quickly. Their great strength can withstand a pressure of up to 1.2 bars.

Our gripper tube for all type of bottles is a universal solution for handling all your bottles.

The GG gripper, despite its high strength, is very light. These facilitates its use for a semi-automatic process.


The gripper is configured in 3 parts:

  • An inflatable body reinforced by a frame
