Newton Gripper Broken Jaw


(Bo Vikarby) #1

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.


New Product: The Newton Subsea Gripper!

Hi Christian

I do not know exactly how it happened. I was driving the Rov on the surface against some waves when it snapped open.
