- Novel versatile parallel gripper equipped with a sheet-embedded belt that enables passive pull-in operations.
- Finger deflection enables the belt to roll up with the closing motion of the gripper, thereby the passively pull-in operations.
- The pull-in mechanism is effective for bin-picking as well as in picking up thin, flexible objects one at a time
