Design, analysis and optimization of an orange peel grapple

  • Glaría Abril, Juan Gabriel
The present project has three main goals: one of design, other of analysis and other of optimization of the model. We will start creating the design of the model taking some references from some companies specialized in orange peel grapples considering minimum and maximum opening angles, weights, etc. Once we have the design already, we can measure the fixed distances and angles we need to do the necessary calculation. We will theoretically analyze the model and later we will analyze it with the help of a CAD program. With the analysis, we will be able to check if our model can withstand the weights and forces on the most critical parts. In the end, we will propose some optimization options to improve the model., Ingeniería Industrial
