Complete change of gripper

Post by Javier123 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 9:29 am


When we were making the video we did not have all the components to have a functional pneumatic gripper, now all components have arrived and the pneumatic gripper is ready.

Is there a problem if we changed the gripper working with a servo to a pneumatic gripper?
We will include this change in the technical document.

Thank you

Yes, you may change your gripper.

If you are using anything other than a manual pump, your company will need to have passed the fluid power quiz.

You do not need to update your technical report - the one you turned in on May 24th is the one that will be evaluated. You should talk about the gripper in your engineering presentation.

Good luck.
