Mankind has always strived to give life like qualities to its artifacts in an attempt to find substitutes for himself to carry out his orders and also to work in a hostile environment. The popular concept of a pick and place robot with mechanical gripper whose arm looks and works like a human arm is one of those attempts. In this paper we have outlined the design procedure and analysis of prototype of pick and place robot with mechanical gripper. We have described a simple process to design pick and place robot using pulley mechanism to actuate its arm. Depending on requirement of weight to be lifted easy changes can be made to this robot using simple relations.
