I have been using a new Gamma X-6FC for more than 3 years without any problem.

I decided to clean the gripper, not because it is slipping, but because it has been 3 years and 120 rackets strung.

I dis-assembled the gripper to clean it.
After removing the last screw, some parts pop off (springs and some plastic parts).

I cleaned the gripper with isopropyl alcohol (99%) and a tooth-brush.

After that, I re-assembled the gripper and put it back to the stringer.

I think I did not re-assemble the gripper properly because I notice some string slipping once in a while.

Can you send me a diagram on how to dis-assemble/assemble the gripper, especially the positioning of the 2 wire springs and the blue plastic part.

Thank you.

@ricardo when you use the @ sign and a user name, it flags the user as having been referenced. It's an alert. You should have one now as an example. When you type it, it doesn't show, but when you post it, it shows in yellow to denote a variable.

Thank you for the rotational gripper diagram.

I re-assembled the rotational gripper following the instructions you sent and so far no slippage.

Recommendation:

While re-assembling, the springs keeps popping out at the bottom.
It took me so many tries to keep the springs straight. Finally I did it.

There is a solution but maybe too expensive to implement.
2 pins at the bottom (like in the top section) will hold the spring in place.
These 2 pins could be much shorter than those in the top section allowing the top gripper to move up/down.

Again, thank you.

@ricardo hello sir, if you are still out there could you send me the diagram? My drop arm stopped working properly this evening and I got the bright idea to remove the gripper. after removing the gripper it was a fireworks of things flying in the air and I don't know what I'm missing. Thanks
