GRABBERS

A high clamping force and strong load rating make these units the lightweight subsea grabbers of choice for portable ROVs operating at high tempo in tough environments. They are the best solution for operators conducting Special Recovery Operations (SRO), salvage, intervention and everyday retrieval tasks up to 300m depth.

SPECIFICATIONS

Grab with Confidence

With high accuracy (0.1°) joint positioning and our master/slave topside controller, the Alpha and Bravo range of lightweight grabbers are a must for operators in the new era of close inspection work and complex intervention. Features include:

  • Built for harsh environments – 300m Depth Rating
  • Corrosion and scratch resistant anodized aluminium
  • Adjustable grab force – pick up a sea urchin or cut a cable
  • Active Compliance – enables safe lifting of unbalanced, heavy objects and optimises stability of the ROV
  • Quick change End-Effector (Options: Standard, Quad Jaws, Parallel Jaws, Rope Cutter)
  • Overcurrent protection
  • Undervoltage/overvoltage protection

“Our experience with the Blueprint Lab Alpha Reach Grabber has only been positive so far. The simple controls kept the implementation time into ROS and our system to a minimum. Furthermore, we have experienced the reliability and robustness of the grabber multiple times in real-world applications and it never let us down. We strongly recommend the grabber for any underwater applications, even in cooperation with divers.”
