The MKII Robotic Claw comes pre-assembled and is the classic claw- heavy duty and made from metal.

The brass sleeves in joints make them rigid and hence are less likely to come loose. The weight of objects that the claw can pick up depends on the servo motor used.
The spring-loaded clutch of the claw helps protect servo gear train while providing spring tension for gripping objects while the 2:1 gearing increases gripping torque while utilizing the full 180° travel of the servo.
The mounting plate on the bottom accepts standard spacing found on servo mounts.
The 20 gram DGServo S05NF STD servo motor, included with this claw, has metal gears, and a stall torque of 2.8kg*cm at 4.8V and 3.2kg*cm at 6V. It also has a speed of 0.2sec/60° at 4.8V and 0.18sec/60° at 6V
If your gripper does not close properly then you may need to take the pinion gear back
out and rotate it by one tooth. Check out the Assembly instructions on how to do this properly.

Possible application areas
This claw can be used in applications where a mobile robot is required to carry objects from one place to another, commonly known as pick-and-place applications.
Robotic Arm, Completely Programmable and controllable through PC. PC software allows easy to use interface for movements and programming sequences. Once the sequence is programmed a program for Rhino Robot Controller Board or Arduino can be generated directly from software so that the arm can be controlled independently without PC.
You can also control it through Rhino Robot Control Board, Arduino or any other microcontroller capable of driving 6 RC Servos to control the robotic arm directly.
With optional Bluetooth module mounted on servo controller pcb - you can control the arm wirelessly over bluetooth from your PC. Apart from arm you can also connect extra servos to the controller.
