The electric Parallel Gripper Kit for Baxter Research Robot

This gripper, the actual hand of Baxter, consists of a parallel electrical clamp. The gripper kit contains:

  • The base connection (the wrist) that connects the arm of Baxter.
  • 4 sets of two clips that fit over the base connection.
  • 5 fingers of different width, different shape and roughness.
Electric parallel grippers provide one degree of freedom with multiple grasp widths, deliver an actuation time of less than one second and allow Baxter to pick up from the outside or inside of an object.  

The clips provide various grasp widths in order to adapt to the types of objects that Baxter must handle. Baxter is able to pick up from the outside or inside of an object. The maximum size of the clamp opening is 151 mm for the largest pliers. Various size are available as shown in the following table:
