A new, larger sprue gripper and gripper finger set are available from EMI Plastics Equipment, Wickliffe, Ohio. When used together, the integrated sprue finger design can handle sprue diameters from 12 to 25 mm. The aluminum fingers are 25 mm wide and have a diamond-patterned surface that securely grips small sprues. Cradle design ensures that large sprues won't twist out. Dual slots allow two sensors to be easily mounted on the gripper. The gripper is offered in either spring-open or double-acting style.
