My team is between a few gripper designs, but we found this system (Lean SL double)](http://leantechnik.com/en/produkte/lean-sl/) from German manufacturer LeanTechnik. In essence its a self-contained two rack and pinion system driven by a motor. Does anyone know of am easier to source option or a way to build something similar?
This type of rack and pinion might be a big excessive for FRC, and would likely have a pretty long lead time
I’ve used a very similar setup for a steering rack in a formula race car, and we had to wait about a month for it to arrive. It was also several hundred dollars. May not be the easiest thing to interface with a FRC motor
