Has anyone ever installed a Hand-E gripper on a Fanuc LR Mate Robot?

It can work and we have seen it in the past.
Few things to keep in mind:
To sum up, we can't call it plug and play, it will take more programming time. But once it is done, it will work just fine.
- The Robotiq grippers works in Modbus RTU. In most cases, the LR Mate will work in Ethernet IP. You will then need a Universal Controller to connect in between to "translate" the communication between the robot and the gripper.
- The the gripper functions are available. Since we don't have a plug and play software to go with this robot, you will have to map the registers of the gripper.
Hope this helps.
