Abstract
This paper discusses a structural analysis of a gripper with a simple gripping mechanism and clarifies deformation and gripping efficiency of the gripper. This gripper is analyzed as a rigid frame which is built-in at both ends. This structure is a statically indeterminate structure. To analyze such a structure, the virtual work method is used. Moreover, to obtain an unknown gripping force, deformation of the gripped object replaced with load cells is considered. The effectiveness of the constructed mathematical model is verified in a comparison with respect to gripping efficiency between a simulation with the model and an experimental result.
