Hi, It will be great if we can put up list of Compatible Grippers for AR2 so that one can try various applications. Chris, I liked AR2. It's a great start. Kindly provide your input as well.Thanks
My preference is any of the SMC pneumatic family grippers. I like the low profile MHF series but you can certainly use any gripper that you can create an adapter to mount to the robot. Some people prefer electric servo grippers but I just find they do not have the performance or force that a pneumatic gripper has.
@Chris Annin can you add your input as well. Thanks
I bought a pneumatic gripper from aliexpress. I bought the 16D and made a small mounting plate for it, but would probably recommend using a small one.
Not bad for $45. Chris also recommends one in his build that has a smaller profile but is more expensive (a similar model is also available on aliexpress)
I am planning to try this at first because it looks affordable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OjhoVuAQkQ
