Robotic Gripper Repeatability Definition and Measurement

On any robotic gripper spec sheet, you will find a measure of the repeatability. What does that term really mean? This blog begins by introducing the repeatability ISO standard used for robot arms, and then explains how gripper repeatability is usually measured in industrial scenarios. As you will see, there is no standard for testing repeatability of robotic grippers, so engineers must ask questions to understand what the repeatability value on a spec sheet really means.
