In the case of the MultiChoiceGripper, the opposable thumb of the human hand acted as inspiration: Just like its natural role model, the Future Concept combines different grip types. Its fingers can therefore be switched over so that they can either grip in a parallel or centric direction – without requiring any conversion.
An application is conceivable wherever many different objects are gripped – for example, in auxiliary robotics, for assembly tasks or in production facilities where various products are made. At the moment, change-over systems often have to be used, which are fitted with different grippers.
