One of the advantages of a servo-electric robot gripper is that it allows you to control the position of the fingers. If the size of the object you want to pick up is known, the fingers can be partially closed before the robot has reached the pick-up location. This, in turn, will reduce the time required to pick up the object and therefore the cycle time will be reduced. As we all know, reducing the cycle time is highly desirable as it allows us to increase the production rate of a robot. In this blog post, I will present how the cycle time can be reduced by programming the partial opening of the 2-Finger Robot Gripper.
