Title: GRIPPER ARM FOR CONTAINERS AND GRIPPER DEVICE HAVING SUCH GRIPPER ARMS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a gripper arm (2) for a device (1) for gripping, holding, and guiding in particular bottle-like containers, which device has a control means (11) for moving a gripping section (5) of the gripper arm (2) from an open position to a gripping position or vice versa, having a bore (10) for mounting a bearing pin (20) for the pivotable fixing of the gripper arm (2) in the device (1), and having a force store for moving the gripping section (5) of the gripper arm (2) from the gripping position to the open position or vice versa. The aim of the invention is specifying a gripper arm that remains sufficiently free of soiling and germs, can at the same time be cleaned without difficulty, and can be produced more quickly and more simply. This aim is achieved in that the force store has a spring tongue (6) that is formed integrally on the gripper arm (2) and can be deflected resiliently and that is or comes into operative engagement with the spring tongue of a mirror-inverted gripper arm (3) of the device (1).
