@Bryan our integration coach can help you with that but you will need to tell us more about the parts and the requirements on positioning accuracy. With our FT sensor it is perfectly possible to create path and have them relative to a different starting point. But to really help you, we need to know more about the process. Could you film it show us ? Along with some tech requirements?

- The ROS packages are meant to be used with the gripper plugged in the USB port of the ROS PC, not the robot controller
- Plug the USB of the gripper in the ROS PC controller and follow these instructions: http://wiki.ros.org/robotiq/Tutorials/Control%20of%20a%20C-model%20gripper%20using%20Modbus%20RTU%20protocol
@mvanhout we have an ongoing beta for the dual Gripper, it's in a private section. I can tell you that the official release will be next month. More to come!
@mertzga this will work but you need to correct a few things. The function is " rq_is_object_detected" and it will return either True or False, not 0 or 1.
Tell me if it works with this.
@lakshmip001 yes you can play with the friction coefficient to increase your payload. The payload calculation is detailed in the instruction manual section 6.2. Same thing with the custom fingertips, some dimensions are specified. The graph is lacking a dimension in X (what you are trying to do), you should respect the same dimensions then the Y specifications.
When looking at those charts you will probably notice that grip force decrease with an increase in finger opening. Thus if you use the 2-F-140 and increase it's opening to maximum you will be able to pick you part of 268 mm but only with a grip force of 40 N.
