ADRIAN POPESCU, GEORGE ENCIU, TIBERIU DOBRESCU, NICOLETA ELISABETA PASCU EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH USING THE 3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY WITH PLASTIC MATERIALS FOR PREHENSION SYSTEMS JAWS
The studies presented in this article are based on the variation of some constructive parameters on various types of materials for a prehension system jaws. The pneumatic actuation prehension system is part of the structure of a manipulator integrated within a teaching platform for installation. In the tests, the varied parameters were the following: the type of plastic material, the way of printing on the 3D printer bed, the degree of fill (the density) and the geometric shape. The experimental tests have resulted in an optimal version of the prehension system jaws.
