Adaptive Gripper Fingers
Smooth and flexible gripping
DHAS Series adaptive gripper fingers for smooth and flexible gripping, with the Fin Ray Effect® derived from the movement of a fish's tail fin. Two flexible bands, which meet at the top like a triangle, form the basis of the Fin Ray Structure®. The bands are connected by ribs, spaced at regular intervals, using flex hinges. This flexible but sturdy connection of the joints allows the gripper fingers to adapt to the contours of a workpiece.
Differently shaped parts can be gripped in an adaptive and smooth way without any need to change the gripper.
The extruded aluminum housing when coupled with the sturdy mounting brackets give a strong mounting arrangement suitable for areas where occasional vibration or knocks may occur. It has quick and easy configuration considering DIP switches. The cable entry with terminal connection in end caps goes with finger protection of 14mm resolution and hand protection of 30 mm resolution.
