Custom End Effector
« on: June 26, 2018, 02:59:37 PM »

Does anyone has experience making a custom end effector for KUKA? I would like to use it for extruding PLA filament and I am going to start building it from zero. So, any insight would be very helpful.

We are still waiting for the disruptive start-ups that sells a range of customizable, robotic tools!
So most people are building their own prototypes...
At least with PLA printers there is much know-how (and products) to be found online, so you mostly need to figure out how to connect it with the robot, rather than building all parts from scratch.
