From an elephant’s trunk to a flexible gripper arm: the Bionic Handling Assistant

From an elephant’s trunk to a flexible gripper arm: the Bionic Handling Assistant

Whether as individual components or part of a system, automation technology carries out everyday tasks in factories such as gripping, moving and positioning goods as well as controlling processes. In the area of process automation, Festo offers innovative conveying, handling and diagnostic solutions for liquid media.

 

Gripping, moving, controlling and measuring – nature performs all of these tasks instinctively, easily and efficiently. What could be more logical than to examine these natural phenomena and learn from them?

 

That is why Festo set up the Bionic Learning Network, a research network linking Festo to well-known universities, institutes, development companies and private inventors.
