Abstract

Until now, many design and manufacturing tasks have only seen partial computerization. One such task is that of assembly planning. This paper presents a system for use in a subarea of assembly planning, the configuration of grippers for robotic assembly. The system is fully automated and thus represents a departure from current practice. The paper gives an example of the application of the system to simple gripper design problems.
