Soft Robotics Soft Adaptive Gripper

Game Changer Winner: Best Gripper

The search for a more adaptable gripper has driven up the complexity of design to devices like servo grippers and complicated tool changing requirements. This complexity comes at a high price in gripper cost, the need for larger arms, and complex software and hardware integration. Our revolutionary soft robotic technology, covered by more than 40 patents and applications, enables us to design and manufacture soft robotic hands that address the new unstructured world of automation and logistics. Through our propriety knowledge of actuator geometry, material selection, and operating envelope, we can tune actuators to be force limiting with NO CLOSED LOOP FEEDBACK system required.
