PHD has released a new gripper called: FLEXION. This is an innovation in gripping technology, inspired by the ultimate gripper: the human hand. When actuated, FLEXION’s multiple joints perform as a human finger to conform and encapsulate a part or grip it by the fingertips. Adjustment of the operating pressure allows for a wide working range of usable force, providing industrial strength for demanding applications or a delicate touch for soft and sensitive product handling.
Operation of the Flexion Gripper
The internal tendon system directs multiple joints to encapsulate or grasp with the fingertips. The adjustment of workload also ensures a wide diversity of usable forces. Flexion offers industrial gripping power for both demanding applications and a soft touch for sensitive product handling. The user can configure the fingers in a simple way, allowing the gripper to be used for various purposes.
In short, Flexion is pushing the automation industry forward with its versatility in an industrial powerhouse!
Benefits Flexion Gripper
This uniquely configurable system consists of finger modules situated on either a parallel or radial gripper hub. Modules can be mounted in arrays of one to five fingers in each position for adaptability offering an unmatched level of versatility and fulfilling a wide range of application requirements. Additionally, each finger can be equipped with two switches to sense positions providing feedback to controls. The system supports ISO 9409 mounting standards, mounting directlyto most robots on the market.
