Adaptive Gripper Arm


The adaptive gripper DHDG from Festo, a result of the innovative Festo Bionic Learning Network, after dominating at a number of design awards including the Deutsche Zukunftspreis 2010 (German Future Award) is gonna come all the way from Germany to Pragyan this year.


This light and flexible gripper is able to grip and transport pressure-sensitive products in a more energy-efficient way. This flexibility in design enables the gripper fingers to adapt to the shape of the product when pressure is applied laterally, just like a human hand, but much faster.


The gripper fingers fully enclose the chocolates and eggs without crushing them or damaging the aluminium wrapping. This goes against the grain of the two central objectives of automation technology: speed and quality. The flexible design of the adaptive gripper DHDG even allows them to be gripped if they are leaning to one side or are incorrectly positioned.
