    In this paper, we introduce unilateral fixtures , a new class of fixtures for sheet-metal parts with holes. These fixtures use cylindrical jaws with conical grooves that facilitate part alignment; each jaw provides the equivalent of four point contacts. The fixtures are unilateral in the sense that their actuating mechanisms are restricted to one side/surface of the part, facilitating access to th... View full abstract»

    Fixture design is an important manufacturing activity which affects the quality of parts produced. In order to develop a viable computer-aided fixturing tool, the fixture-workpiece system has to be accurately modeled and analyzed. This paper describes the modeling, analysis, and verification of optimal fixturing configurations by the methods of force closure, optimization, and finite-element model... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a methodology for the optimal design of fixture layouts in multistation assembly processes. An optimal fixture layout improves the robustness of a fixture system against environmental noises, reduces product variability, and leads to manufacturing cost reduction. Three key aspects of the multistation fixture layout design are addressed: a multistation variation propagation mode... View full abstract»

    Planning a proper set of contact points on a given object/workpiece so as to satisfy a certain optimality criterion is a common problem in grasp synthesis for multifingered robotic hands and in fixture planning for manufacturing automation. In this paper, we formulate the grasp planning problem as optimization problems with respect to three grasp quality functions. The physical significance and pr... View full abstract»

    This work presents a method to determine stable pushing motions for a planar stack of polygonal parts. The approach consists of solving a series of subproblems where each part in the stack is pushing the parts ahead of it. The solutions to these subproblem an sets of stable motions, and their intersection is the set of stable motions for the entire stack. The motion of multiple parts depends on th...
