This mechanical claw is made from metal and is pretty heavy-duty. It is great for robotic projects. The mechanism features brass sleeves in the joints which make them more rigid and less likely to come loose. The claw opens to about 2" and depending on the servo motor used, it can pick up some relatively heavy objects. The new spring-loaded clutch helps protect your servo gears from damage and also increases the gearing to 2:1, allowing the servo to act over its entire range and provide more gripping power!
There is a mounting plate on the bottom which accepts standard spacing found on servo mounts (the extra bits that come with our servo motors). The claw does not come with a servo motor (the ‘micro servo’ is the one that works best).
