Design of a Capillary Gripper for a Submillimetric Application


This paper describes the study of a gripper using the surface tension effects to pick and place the 0.5mm or 0.3mm diameter balls of a millimetric watch bearing. Two liquid supply strategies have been tested (pressure drive and tip dip). The effects of the coating (through the measurement of the contact angles), the presence of an internal channel and the… (More)
