Looks at a research project to design a generic robotic gripper able to assemble a PC board with electronic components as efficiently as possible. Discusses the concept of grouping electronic components into part families to allow for the design of a generic gripper to manipulate a component from each group. Outlines the design and operation of the gripper and the monitoring of its performance. Concludes that the concept of a low cost, low maintenance generic gripper compares favourably with specialized robotic end‐effectors.
