Description:-

Advances in grippers offer incredible benefits for manufacturers in precision, performance, and productivity. Manufacturers can use this end-effector tooling for picking, placing, or packing objects. Grippers can handle hazardous materials without a safety risk to employees and can also take over repetitive tasks that may cause a repetitive strain injury. There are a wide variety of grippers on the market to suit different applications. One of the most basic forms is a parallel motion two-jaw gripper, which is commonly used for lifting objects. However, there are a number of different designs including bellows grippers, O-ring grippers, and needle grippers. As well as their physical structure, grippers can vary in how they are powered, as they can be hydraulic, pneumatic, or electric. Despite the number of grippers available on the market, there are still many tasks that are difficult for robots to accomplish and that design engineers can consider when developing this technology. For instance, typical industrial grippers were designed to be task-specific, which means they are not particularly versatile, and this could hinder their wider application.
