Rgc rating machine

It took a while...

I can't afford to send grippers overseas but I can spend some time welding and fitting.

I would love to understand a little more how you built this or even just a little bit of  the thinking behind your design…

but thanks for posting to the gripboard

Just ask. There's no secret

Hello @Keet how are you? I'd like to know how did you make it, may we discuss it on DM?

That turned out really good, fantastic design.

I always say if can weld you can build anything.

I've been after making one for a few years can I ask how you made the threaded actuator part I've been searching for ages trying to figure out what it came from. Its been my only stumbling block.

Acme lead screw and nut just welded to the tube

Thanks guess it's easier than a telescopic device will look at doing that myself

I can certainly appreciate how much thought went into the design.

I'm quite impressed with the outcome - it turned out awesome !!!

This is cool.  Does it use an actuator or manual lever to load the crane scale?  Have you considered adding a sensor to automate closure validation?  Next step is automated rating assembly line and sell it to the big names to rate every single one :)

It's hard to describe how little interest they have in rating grippers. This is truly a grip nerd thing and the call for this is coming from inside the house. :cannon:

Manual. For better control. Best sensor is a thin sheet of paper😀

Awesome build.  

Paper varies a lot... .006"/.15mm to .012"/.3mm on the same sheet sometimes.

For repeatability Brass shim stock at .001" seems more appropriate.

 Or .05mm shim stock in the civilized world
