How Does the Robotiq Gripper Self-Locking System Work?

Choosing an end-effector for your robot can sometimes be confusing. In fact, a lot of different options are available which might suit your application. When looking for a robot gripper you want it to be reliable, repeatable, precise and safe. Some robot grippers out there are touted as super accurate with good repeatability, but what happens if the air or electricity runs out… The object that is in the gripper can fall and break and/or injure the human workers that are near the robot. This is why all of our Robot Grippers are self-locking. With the growing presence of the collaborative robot in the manufacturing world, we wanted to make a safe robotic Gripper that will keep its grasp on the object if the energy source runs out or if there is a fail in the programming method.
