Pneumatic Muscle Actuated Compliant Gripper Systems
Transilvania University of Brasov, Industrial Engineering and Management Department, Faculty of Technological Engineering and Industrial Management, Romania
The paper presents the stages of developing new, light, eco-friendly and bionic gripper systems. Gripping is achieved by means of original, self adaptive, bio-inspired systems, with a pneumatic muscle as motion generator. The method underlying the development of these new gripping systems is based on the creation of concepts by analogy, an instrument aimed at widening the inspiration horizon in designing by using models from nature.
