non contact Gripper, CFD, rotor.


In this paper, a new non-contact gripper using a rotor is introduced and CFD analysis is done. This non-contact gripper creates a negative pressure that helps in lifting the object but does not allow the object to be lifted to come in contact with the gripper. Gripper with a rotor mentioned in this paper consumes minimum power when compared to other pneumatically activated noncontact grippers as it does not involve the use of compressors. The CFD analysis of the pressure variation at the top of work piece to be lifted is found and is validated.
