Abstract

Light Activated Adhesive Gripper (LAAG) workholding technology is a means by which a workpiece is held by adhesive joints that can be instantaneously cured or destroyed, on demand. A LAAG joint is the adhesive bond between the gripper pin and workpiece. Due to the novelty of this concept, no knowledge exists with regard to how LAAG joints deform and fail during quasi-static loading. This paper describes an investigation that was carried out to characterize the strength, ductility, and failure modes of a LAAG joint adhering a machined, steel surface subject to axial loading and shear loading.
