Dr. George Whitesides at Harvard University inspired by the tentacles of an octopus, developed a new class of robotic actuators built entirely of smart elastomeric materials.
We have built a fundamentally new class of robotic grippers that are adaptive, plug and play, repeatable and reliable. Our advanced air actuated soft elastomeric end effectors enable novel industrial applications including warehouse logistics, advanced assembly and food handling where sanitation and delicate manipulation are important. Our system improves quality, productivity, safety and flexibility for better response to market.
The Soft Robotics System consists of our Control Unit, Robotic Gripper and Software.
Fully integrated, turn-key, plug and play with all commercial robot controllers.
High speed controller (>3 Hz) with millisecond precision.
Repeatable and reliable.
Wide range of adaptable gripper configurations
Full control of grip closing force and opening width. Ability to program and store up to 8 grip profiles.
