Robot Gripper Metrics Studied at NIST

If you are already using a robot gripper you may have been through the selection process for the gripper. This can be a very complex process since every company has its very own way to market its grippers and to present their data in the best light for them in order to have an advantage over their competitors. Let's be honest this is just how free and open markets work! But it doesn't necessarily help you to analyze all the data you have to review. So, to help the end-user with this data the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has decided to test a couple of different grippers to establish some robot gripper metrics. These metrics should help you to decide which end-effector will best suit your application according to the capabilities of the gripper and the needs of your application. The following article describes the different tests that have been done on the selected grippers.
