Gripper with Average Continuous Reconfigurability for Industrial Robots

Abstract:

Article Preview

Anthropomorphic grippers for robots are used increasingly in robotic applications for handling and assembly. Currently there are several versions of anthropomorphic grippers as projects, prototypes or commercial variants that due to high prices or even for very high ones, are not available for current applications. Among them, high functionality at a relatively low complexity can be noticed in the case of reconfigurable grippers with high reconfigurability, Barrett Hand type. In this context, it is justified finding alternative solutions at lower prices at a lower reconfigurability, with acceptable functionality for current robotic operations. The paper presents an original version of modular anthropomorphic gripper continuous average reconfigurability, with three fingers. There are mentioned, briefly, major structural, kinematic and static issues, a CAD model and CAD simulation for gripping several types of pieces. Furthermore, we intend to achieve a prototype and test it by mounting on an industrial robot.
