Larger jaws for the Newton Subsea Gripper

Our soon to be available Large Aluminum Jaws for the Newton Subsea Gripper. A size comparison of the Aluminum jaws (left) vs standard jaws (right) can be seen in the below photo. They are machined from 6061 Aluminum and hard anodized. They incorporate precision flange bushing inserts to reduce friction. We have worked closely with Blue Link, and several SAR agencies on the development and our first production batch just came in from anodizing. Though designed primarily for search and recovery applications, they can be used anywhere slightly larger or stronger jaws are required. The first sets will be available for purchase through www.blue-linked.com soon.

nicely done.

how about 3 finger jaws?

In a smaller jaw, a 3 or 4 finger intermeshing design would work well. Because our jaws are longer, and maximum opening is the goal, there was not enough length of stroke. If we were to change the nose block, we could get the range of motion but the grab force would be greatly diminished.

And another couple photos of the jaws installed on a Newton. They have been working great for demos.
