The second generation of Vacuum gripper for Baxter
This vacuum gripper for Baxter is the second generation. This new version has been totally re-engineered for more power and more flexibility compared to the old version.
Rethink Robotics announce a better grasping performance via increased vacuum flow (over 4x the old kit). The vacuum gripper also allows a faster grip and release performance. Last but not least, this new vacuum gripper for Baxter features a latching valve so Baxter will no longer drop parts when power is lost and also a robust manifold block mounting point, providing more options for distributing / configurating vacuum grippers.
