Hi,
So far we are satisfied the gripper.
We found it can grasp an (raw) egg.

Also, here is my recent video with Robotiq & Baxter:

I have one question. After finishing the grasping motion, the gripper
is rocked at the final pose. Can we disable the rock? Then we can
interact with the gripper (e.g teaching a motion).

    Dear member,
    Can you tell me what you mean by "disabled the rock?" I'm not sure I understand.
    Thanks for clarifying.

    Hi Etienne,
    "disabled the rock": Sorry, this was a typo. I meant the automatic lock of Robotiq after the motion. Imagine a teaching-playback system
    (of Baxter, for example). We can easily teach motions with such a mode. The lock of Robotiq after moving is good to keep the grasping state, but is not helpful for making such a teaching system. So I asked if there is a mode to disable the lock.
    Thank you,

    Thank you for the information.
    Could you give me URLs of the new generation Grippers?

    Do you mean a gripper like 2F85-2015? Actually I compared my version of gripper and the new version 2F85-2015 when we ordered it, but I could not find the difference like that function. Could you tell me where (e.g. spec-sheet, catalog, URL) such a function is explained?

    This is just a curiosity for my future purchase.

    There are two generations of Gripper in circulation, now we only sell the "new" one, it's what you can see on the website.

    http://robotiq.com/products/adaptive-robot-gripper/

    Here is a video showing the feature I was talking about : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpz93170dAk

    There are also many different features, like payload, force control, etc.

    Hi Etienne,
    The new gripper is very nice. I considered only the data on the spec-sheet (the old version was satisfying our requests), but that
    secure function is a big motivation to buy the new one.

    Thanks,
