When designing a #robotic or automated #assembly machine, applying a gripper correctly unit can make the difference in the reliability and productivity of the assembly machine system or robotic cell. #Gripper calculations will vary depending on many factors such as, part acceleration, part weight, physical size, tooling length, tooling jaw style (encompassing grip or friction grip), tooling jaw material and the number of jaws that come in contact with the part.

Onshoring with Botsourcing Often Makes Financial Sense. Reshoring is the fastest and most effective way to strengthen the #USA economy and #machine assembly automation or #Robotic #outsourcing is the way to reduce cost of a product.

No doubt that #robotics is a key component of mainstream automated assembly in #manufacturing processes today. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) reported that 2012 saw the second highest number of robots ever sold: 159,346 units. IFR estimates the worldwide market value for robot systems at $26 billion

MIT Electric #gripper   Alberto Rodriguez, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, and graduate student Nikhil Chavan-Dafle, has developed a model that predicts the force with which a robotic gripper needs to push against various fixtures in the environment in order to adjust its grasp on an object.

+MIT MEng in Manufacturing #MIT #engineers have devised a way to give more dexterity to simple #robotic #grippers using the environment as a helping hand. Their model predicts the force with which a robotic gripper must push against surrounding fixtures in order to adjust its grasp. (Learn more about the system: http://mitne.ws/1ONlwzt)

Hard vs. Soft #Assembly #Automation Increased #Factory Productivity
#Manufacturers have options when considering the incorporation of automation into their processes. The correct mental approach to the implementation of automation is to start with the product and work back to through the automation process. The type of product and volume dictates whether the manufacturer should utilize hard (fixed) or soft (flexible) automation.

Tips for maximizing gripper life: From Design News

As with any device, proper attention to design criteria is critical for the performance and product performance. Here are some tips to help maximize the life of a gripper:
1. Besides the obvious additional lubrication at regular intervals, correct sizing is critical.
2. Keep the tooling jaws short as possible.
3. Keep the center of mass of the gripped part as close to the gripper as possible.
4. Ensure that the X, Y and Z axes to which the gripper is attached have smooth acceleration and deceleration.
5. Maintain application temperatures within the rated guidelines of the gripper.
Grippers grasp or enclose parts for transfer, insertion, or assembly in a variety of manufacturing situations.
