DETERMINATION OF DEFLECTION FREE OF END METAL SHEET PLATES BY HANDLING ROBOT WITH USING VACUUM EFFECTOR
Practical application of this new methodology of appropriate deployment of the holding elements is used to manipulate and handle materials with large diameters and perimeters and small thickness. In these cases it is possible to replace the intuitive deployment calculation method. The result is a rational determination of the size and number of the vacuum effectors. The article deals with the selection of appropriate vacuum holding components and their localization in the handling system that
... dling system that is to hold and move rectangular plates. In this article the method of designing and creating the calculation and the program that will make possible the automatic selection of the suction elements, as well as their optimal localization in relation with the permitted deflection of the handled object is presented. The presented approach helps to simplify the work of a designer in the design of the vacuum grips. It helps the user to select the correct size and number of effectors in handling a steel sheet as well as choosing the best location. In the calculations, the dynamic aspect of the problem in hand has not been solved or calculated. The safe grip of the object was ensured and secured by a safety factor. The calculation is verified by the finite element method (FEM) modeling.
