    A prototype flat-surface, single-chambered and multi-chambered gripper, based on the operational principle of suction and pressure differential has been designed, implemented and experimentally tested. The prototype grippers are proven sufficient to pick and place fabric material accurately and reliably without causing any distortion and/or folding of the fabric. Both prototype grippers have been mounted on AdeptOne and AdeptThree robot arms for experimental and reliability analysis. They both meet requirements as set by the US apparel industry, related to pick and place single cut plies of several types of fabric View full abstract»
