Item description for Robot Grippers by Gareth J. Monkman, Stefan Hesse, Ralf Steinmann & Henrik Schunk...
Since robotic prehension is widely used in all sectors of manufacturing industry, this book fills the need for a comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of the topic. As such, this is the first text to address both developers and users, dealing as it does with the function, design and use of industrial robot grippers. The book includes both traditional methods and many more recent developments such as micro grippers for the optolectronics industry. Written by authors from academia, industry and consulting, it begins by covering the four basic categories of robotic prehension before expanding into sections dealing with endeffector design and control, robotic manipulation and kinematics. Later chapters go on to describe how these various gripping techniques can be used for a common industrial aim, with details of related topics such as: kinematics, part separation, sensors, tool excahnge and compliance. The whole is rounded off with specific examples and case studies. With more than 570 figures, this practical book is all set to become the standard for advanced students, researchers and manufacturing engineers, as well as designers and project managers seeking practical descriptions of robot endeffectors and their applications.

Excellent comprehensive overview Feb 14, 2007
This book covers one thing very comprehensively-- robot grippers! It is similar to the illustrated mechanical device source books found on this site, but with a specific focus.
It's organized well and reads easily once you've reviewed the glossary of terms used (provided early in the book). Being new to this subject area, I found it very helpful and got many design ideas from it.
