During his internship at Fetch Robotics, Andrew Zeller designed, fabricated, and tested various vacuum gripper concepts. In his intern video, you will see his final vacuum gripper design and its ability to lift large items.

With the possibility of alternative end effectors, such as Andrew’s vacuum gripper, the Fetch robot can expand on its capabilities and diversify the types of materials and products it can handle.

We are disappointed to have Andrew’s internship come to an end. However, we are excited about his contributions and the doorway to possible gripper designs he has opened. We hope to have him return for an additional internship before he completes his education at the University of Alabama.
