Dhdg adaptive gripper. Festo.

Blog Widget by LinkWithin

The DHDG adaptive gripper consists of a pneumatic drive in a robust basic body and three gripper fingers. The fingers are equipped with the FinRay Effect (Evologics GmbH) for reliable and non-destructive gripping of fragile materials, irregular work pieces or pressure-sensitive components. This effect is modelled after the fins of fish. The gripper is fabricated from polyamide in a selective laser-sintering process. The open design of the basic body enables space-saving integration of the gripper fingers’ movement mechanism.

• SoftGrip: gentle gripping with positive locking
• Versatile: gripper fingers adapt to different shapes and contours
• Economical: 80% less weight than comparable series-produced grippers
• Optimised: Compact design, double-acting cylinder and interchangeable gripper fingers
• Durable: innovative production method for long service life
