JAW – 21074
A jaw is a specialized robot gripper, consisting of individual parts that can clamp down to hold an object, and open to let the object go free. The device gets its name from its functional resemblance to the human jaw, or to the jaws of various animals and insects.
A typical robotic jaw has two parts that are hinged at a common end.One or both parts can move relative to the robot arm. Some jaws have three or four movable parts that come together to grip an object, and dilate to free it.
