A gripper is a tool which is accumulated on equipment. It is used to grip or hold work pieces that holds and release the piece by opening or closing the fingers. The fingers are powered with the pneumatic or the electric power that can be adjusted or non-adjustable. It is classified in two types of products for instance electric gripper and pneumatic gripper. Electric gripper is sub-segmented into two-finger electric gripper & three-finger electric gripper. The electric grippers are cleaner than pneumatic grippers, as they don’t need much maintenance and therefore save cost on maintenance and power. The electric grippers are appropriately used for providing distinguish grip. The electric grippers are noiseless as the operation and works as an environment-friendly used and implemented instead of pneumatic grippers in a variety of industries.
