On my new Eagnas (insert expletives) the bearing races on the linear gripper were painted with an inexpensive black paint that wore away quickly in an irregular pattern that left ridges. These ridges, combined with a few rusty bearings (insert expletives) made the gripper hang-up before clamping fully.

The solution was to tear down the gripper and sand and polish the races and bearings very carefully.
