Can 3D printed robot grippers be 97% cheaper?
In practice, the economic and physical limitations of conventional manufacturing processes often make robot grippers heavy, bulky and inefficient – resulting in high costs with long lead times. 3D-printed robot grippers are very robust, yet lightweight and can be manufactured quickly at a fraction of the cost. With Markforged’s continuous fiber technology, these parts can withstand thousands of cycles without failure. A new set of robot grippers can be made in less than a day with the MarkTwo and is as strong as aluminium – at half the weight!
