Abstract: One of the biggest concerns in industrial factories or science labs is the safety considerations. The mechanical hand is a safety product as an alternative hand for human to move objects around. The objective of this study is to select a proper material, design and fabricate of mechanical hand. The appropriate material is selected and the new design of mechanical hand created by using CAD software. Using ANSYS software the critical components of mechanical hand have been analyzed and to get the more accurate result the analytical calculations also done for the components. The finite element and analytical results had been compared and in conclusion the designed mechanical hand in this study meets all the objectives. After the manufacturing process and finite element analysis, the comfortability, motion, maximum load and heat experiments are done on the mechanical hand in order to investigate its performance. By selecting the proper material the strength of material is increased and also it can be used in high temperatures. The strength and safety of material is increased in new design and the possibility of failure in critical components decreased. The results give new design ideas to improve performance and design of the mechanical hands.
