Abstract
In industrial robot, the grippers are attached at its end and one of the most important components in it. Industrial robot for customized application results in need of gripper with unique design and limited volume in short span and least cost. FEA-assisted topology optimization has shown great potential in obtaining better design space for customized limited volume components. In this work, gripper of a mini-robot to lift the component of 100 g for palletizing operation is designed using topology optimization. However, there are limitations in terms of fabrication of complex optimized design using conventional manufacturing process. So in this work, optimized design is fabricated in ABS plastic using fused deposition modeling process which is an additive manufacturing technique. The fabricated optimized model along with existing design model is evaluated in the experimental setup for end applications.
