A Soft Gripper with Retractable Nails for Advanced Grasping and Manipulation

This study describes the enhancement of a vacuum actuated soft gripper’s grasping capabilities using retractable finger nails and an active re-configurable palm. The finger nail mechanism is pneumatically actuated and enables the gripper to perform […]

Hybrid and soft grippers

Traditional grippers used in industrial automation are designed for specific tasks and their mechanisms are composed primarily of stiff components. These systems tend to be expensive, heavy, bulky, and not easily adaptable to a wide […]
