“Adaptive” Gripper for the Niryo Ned 6-Axis Robot Arm
This adaptive gripper, designed specifically for the new Niryo “Ned” robot, can handle unusual objects that other grippers can’t.
Niryo adaptive gripper: because not everything can be put in a box
Most of the grippers used in robotics are designed for picking up and handling “standard” square and rectangular objects. Clearly, these tools often lack the precision and firm grip required to pick up an egg, a ball or a slightly more complex object such as a cup.
This adaptive gripper for the Ned robot arm can pick up “non-standard” and fragile objects and hold them right in its centre. With no risk of them slipping!
Useful accessories for the Niryo Ned 6-axis robot arm
The Ned robot arm has 6 degrees of freedom and was designed by Niryo as a new development tool for learning and research. It has an EasyConnect adapter system that makes changing tools easy.
You can of course use the gripper supplied with the platform which has retractable fingers, allowing you also to print new ones. Or you can choose between an adaptive gripper, a “large” gripper, a vacuum pump for flat objects and an electromagnet that attracts small objects.
