Abstract [en]

The printing industry had a turnaround on about 700 billion US dollar in 2008. Althoughthe printing process itself is highly automated, a lot of the handling between process stepsis done manually and these heavy lifts could result in occupational injuries with long timeexposure. Operators for example can lift up to 1-2 tons/hour when moving large stacks ofpaper from a pallet to a jogger table before cutting. For quality reasons it’s important tomake these lifts with correct airing of the paper and without harming the edges or surface,something a human is very adapt in doing. To see if it is possible to do this mechanically,a dual armed robot equipped with grippers was used to lift an air paper stacks inlaboratory experiments. In order to achieve the same high quality as in manual handlingthese experiments tested the grippers, gripper fingers, robot movements and grippositions to find the best parameters for a future automated paper handling cell. The testsshowed that a dual armed robot could lift paper stacks with satisfying airing withoutharming the paper. Also, better gripper fingers were developed for lifting the paper withouttears or surface marks.
