Developing technology has accompanied the need for different working equipments and the discovery of these accordingly. One of these working equipments is shape memory alloys (SMA), which experience phase change when heat is applied and return to the volume and shape in its memory during this phase change. In case of giving the necessary heat for shape change, energy is obtained with high power / weight ratio. It has been observed that there are products in which these systems are used in many areas such as industrial, aviation, medicine, etc.. Within the scope of the study, a gripper has been developed for robotic and automation applications with the use of SMA. It has been observed that the developed holder provides solutions for handling and moving. In addition, with the evaluation of the energy provided by the SMA's with high power / weight ratio in the right designs, it was determined that it will provide much more advanced solutions in the following stage.
