PolyJet-Printed Bellows Actuators: Design, Structural Optimization, and Experimental Investigation

Pneumatic bellows actuators are exceptionally suitable for Additive Manufacturing (AM) as the required geometrical complexity can easily be obtained and their functionality is not affected by rough surfaces and small dimensional accuracy. This paper is an extended version of a previously published c...
