The locking gripper offers the same features as the heavy duty gripper, but adds the benefit of a locking mechanism to retain the tool. Because the tool cannot be removed from the gripper, this design is ideal for rapid acceleration or extremely heavy tools. Unlocking can be mechanical, electric, or pneumatic depending on customer requirements.
