Does your robot need to get a grip? The new Parallel Gripper Kit A from Actobotic could be the answer! The grippers on this part move toward each other in parallel to squeeze and hold the object of interest. It opens to a maximum width of 2.8″ but won’t take up much space on your robot, with body dimensions with 5″ long by 4.1″ wide.
The kit can be easily assembled with a Phillips head screwdriver and a pair of pliers. While the kit does not come with servos, it can be used with any standard size Hitec servo with a 24T spline. It can also be easily mounted on Actobotics components, as it offers both 0.77″ and 1.5″ hub patterns.
