Description: This is the Micro Gripper Kit A, a simple robotics kit that is great for “getting a grip” on smaller robotics projects! Designed for use with any sub-micro size Hitec servo, the gripper kit is easy to assemble and requires only a Phillips Head Screwdriver. This Micro Gripper is capable of opening 2.75" wide max, has an overall body length of 1.7" long with a 1.3" wide servo housing body, and offers three 6-32 mounting through-holes along the edges of the servo housing.
Actobotics is a robotics building system based around extruded aluminum channels, gears, precision shafts, and ball bearings. Thanks to the two standardized hole patterns, nearly all Actobotics components can be intuitively connected together. The wide range of components makes building complex electromechanical prototypes or finished projects a reality.
Note: This kit does NOT include a servo. Check the Recommended Products section below for great sub-micro size servo options.
Based on 3 ratings:
This gripper works well! It “splines” directly onto your micro servo, providing great performance - much better than the linkage-based options. But… it’s only compatible with certain servos (just like you can’t always mix servo horns). It fits the recommended servo, as well as Turnigy and Towerpro nylon gear servos (but not the metal ones, strangely enough). Haven’t tested any others.
Pros: Strong, fits nicely on the micro servo
Cons: no assembly instructions
