Mindstorms NXT Servo Activated Grab

I’ve been working on a new Lego Mindstorms: NXT-Servo Activated Grab for a crane I am working on. The Grab is driven by a R.C. Servo motor, controlled via a Mindsensor NXT-Servo controller interface to the Lego Mindstorms NXT Brick.

This grab assembly relies on my Technics Mount Modifications to 43g R.C. Servos I sorted out a few months ago. The R.C. Servo & its corresponding mount makes a very strong and reliable set of jaws for any grab. It verges on painful when the jaws close on your finger. The Servo is moved through a total of 60 degrees to move the jaws from open-to-close.

Vide of the Grab Assembly in Action!

The Grab & Crane Arm featured will eventually be part of a crane for a warehouse system I’m playing with. I hope to put my newly acquired Dexter Industries NXT-Bee, wireless modems to work sending order messages to the NXT’s in the system.
