Abstract

Assembly is a crucial part in the realization of a product. Compared to assembly in the macro world, assembly in the micro world is influenced by scaling effects [1, 2]. These include surface forces, high requirements on the placement uncertainty and small product dimensions. Conventional high-speed assembly in many cases utilizes suction grippers. However, their large moving mass results in high collision forces during product placement [3]. Therefore they are unsuitable for assembling micro products.
