In the age of technology now, there are many innovations that can search work equally with the human, it is a robot. The technology handling robots are the most popular in the manufacturing industry and also in the medical system too. There are systems that the originators were sat up such as the sensor to measure the distance or using a lot of stain gauge or use the system photographs for check the change of semicircle material or using pneumatic in the gripper. Thus, this paper concern with to design the gripper that has the ability in the action of material handling by finding the optimum geometrical dimensions of a robot gripper. The problem is optimized by using an Ant colony metaphor with five objective functions, seven constraints and seven variables.
