New Product: The Newton Subsea Gripper!


(Christian) #21

ok …tnx Rusty :wink: …for a task of target…well cant be too much actually(win or loose)… loosing the target is way worse than braking a bone( or use your imagination):/… but enough of That…(i know ;)…just if its possible to adjust it for worst case…or a diffferent task at all?..i can promice you this is waay to weak for a bodyrecovery by a foot!(or Any part) Garatiied. Been there done that:/ …and Hydolek is way strongr than the original Gripper. …and it was Not strong enough, for that task… couldn move the ROV at all!!.. so im wondering if i can increase or lock it?.. bec i have a way of “Holding”…but i would love to have a “Lock” macanism?..or will the gripper hold for 30 min full power ?..what your advise on that for “Holding” ? …not just for recovery, feks divesupport?.. just filming and by using the gripper, i need allmost no power for doing a task like that, but if i have to Hold the gripper, will itl consume a lot of power?

Hi Christian, I don’t have any experience with body recovery in real life so I can’t say too much on the topic!

The gripper will hold at full grip strength indefinitely. It does not require any power to hold. When stopped it is always locked.

Hi My gripper failed and suddenly snapped open when ascending from 20m holding a small aluminum arm with a GoPro camera attached to it. One of the gripper yaws is not strong enough to take any heavy loads. It is stronger to machine it in aluminum.
