In this paper a new way of transporting parts in production systems is described. Based on the fact that in nature the highest speeds are reached at flight, a bio-inspired technical approach for the fast transportation of objects is derived. Objects shall be thrown by a throwing device and are caught again by a catching device. Such a transport approach(More)
In flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) "throwing" as a new approach for transportation of parts between machines is proposed. "Throwing" brings up the problem of capturing. For capturing fast flying objects grippers are required, which have a closing time of less than 10 ms. In this paper two types of mechanically controlled grippers are proposed. At the(More)
