The supreme discipline: construction of complete grippers Companies who wish for complete solutions can also obtain finished grippers from AGS. The major advantage is that Schwope, with his team of currently five employees, can always find the appropriate solution to a specific problem statement. “We ponder over a task until we have found the best possible result”, Franz Schwope (picture) explains, “with this solution-oriented approach, new ideas also constantly emerge of course.“ The customers benefit from Franz Schwopes’ 30 years of experience, not only in the form of perfectly sophisticated grippers, but also through economical manufacturing costs. AGS often dispenses with the cost-intensive planning of a gripper on the “drawing board” and the company immediately proceeds to action instead. Around the problem presented by the customer, i.e. a component to be gripped, AGS builds up the gripper and therefore finds the appropriate solution straight away with direct reference to practice. Elaborate and often fruitless planning phases are therefore omitted. The previous premises of the Bergisch Gladbach company have already become too small in the shortness of time. The first sod will be cut for the new manufacturing and assembly areas in February. Over an area of 1200 m² and subsequently also with a markedly larger number of employees, AGS GmbH will then develop and market even more innovative solutions for grippers.
