Abstract: Robots play a vital role in automation of machines. The performance of robotic manipulator is completed by the end effectors. The choice of end effector is depended on the type of task to be performed. For holding the component and pick & place activities to the specified location gripper is selected and for different types of workshop operations various tools are fixed on the manipulator e.g. welding electrode holder, painting spray gun etc.
