Title: Synthesis of an adaptive gripper
Keywords: Adaptive gripper, Structure, Synthesis, Analysis

Abstract: The problem about synthesis of an original adaptive gripper with simplified structure is formulated and solved. The synthesized gripper is mainly oriented to automatic manipula-tion devices, which are designed for carrying, and assembly work-pieces under production of appliances and electrical-industrial articles. A developed example illustrates the application of the compound mathematical models for gripper synthesis and results evaluation.
