Hello community , in the spirit of diy progression I am sharing some pictures and info on vacuum grippers. I will make a separate thread for pressurized grippers and cylinders so that they are easier to search and find. Simple vacuum grippers consist of a few parts

-actuator
-pressure/vacuum cylinder
-hard tubing
-suction cup style gripper
