    Abstract

    Most of the micro objects in industrial production are handled with manual labour or in semiautomatic stations. Manual labour usually makes handling and assembly operations highly flexible, but slow, relatively imprecise and expensive. Handling of 3D micro objects poses special challenges due to the small absolute scale. In this article, the results of the pick-and-place operations of three different 3D micro objects were investigated. This study shows that depending on the correct gripping tool design as well as handling and assembly scenarios, a high success rate of up to 99% repeatability can be achieved using a small industrial robot.
