Festo offers adaptive gripper fingers with the Fin Ray Effect® for smooth and flexible gripping. The Fin Ray Effect is 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 areconnected by ribs, spaced at regular intervals, using flex hinges. This flexible but sturdy connection of the joints allows the gripper fingers toadapt to the contours of a part, no matter how unusually shaped.
