Where I can purchase a gripper for KUKA KR6?
« on: July 20, 2019, 10:28:01 AM »
Hello everyone,,
I want to have a gripper in order to practice brick layering. But I have only bare robot arm.
I've looked many website and inquired some local companies but I couldn't locate where I can order.
Is anyone here have some idea where I can order one?
The one that I can practice with KUKA PRC sample files.
It does not have to be very perfect precise one as what I want is a brick layering.
Look forward to having kind advices!!!

Most companies that sell pneumatic equipment also sell grippers (e.g. SMC at You can also order them at RSComponents, in case you use them for electronics:
In general, I very much like Schunk grippers, they are also available widely

Finally, if your budget is limited look on eBay.
In either case check the specs of the exact gripper you are buying to make sure that you can actually fit a brick!
