The aim of this study is to design a new type of grab mechanism for plastic bags machine in order to tear apart the plastic gloves from the plastic bags and stack them into a pile automatically. A grab mechanism with four bar linkage is developed and the main part of the grab mechanism is the clip which will pick up the plastic gloves and drag them to the other side. After a distance of drag, the clip will drop the plastic gloves to the collecting plate. The clips are fixed on the connecting rod of the four-bar linkage and the path of the clip can be traced by the position analysis of the four bar linkage. The path of the clip can be tracked by determination of the four links’ lengths. This path tracking will be one of the advantages of this new mechanism because it provides the different drag distance to grab difference size of plastic gloves by simply adjusting the lengths of four links.
