Industrial Robotic Systems: Learning About their Components

Date Added: October 19, 2009 07:23:34 PM
Category: "A": Automation & Robotics

Automation increases the level of production and efficiency of certain industries. It is in this regard that industrial robotic systems have been conceptualized. It is true that this technology renders much help to users. The problem however lies upon the cost that goes with it. Additionally, it also takes time and effort to learn how such systems work.

Industrial robotics is highly relevant in applications like device assembly and medical procedures. These are entirely different from the other types of robots that you know of. Attaching the word industry to the robotic system means that the device has special mechanisms that will actually make it work for specific industries. Industrial robotic systems operate through complex network configurations that adapt to the business where it will be performing its work.

Components and capabilities of industrial robotics

It has been said a while back that industrial robotics increase efficiency and production for manufacturers. Other than this important capability, there are yet other features and components to tap in the system. Major features include environmental interfaces as well as environmental sensors. The list is also completed by safety features, data management and storage systems. All of these are highly relevant to disposing the task of a certain production area or department.

Under the major features are subcomponents for industrial robotic systems. These minor components are considered small yet very essential in making the system work. The mechanical arm or robotic manipulator is one important feature in that it helps the robot work on a wider range of motion. Another subcomponent is the effector located in the robotic manipulator. This one is capable of moving far beyond than the robotic manipulator and is a very flexible component of the system.

How do industrial robots move?

Industrial robots move in single and multiple directions. One is known as the point-to-point movement where the robots are designed to move from one specific point to other points in the system. Another phase is known as the straight line movement where the robot moves forward but does not have the capability to move to other system points. Defined curve movement on the other hand, is a phase wherein the robot is given the chance to take a curvilinear route as predefined by the engineers of the system.

Industrial robotic systems work depending on the programmed path. As seen in the different movements made by the industrial robot, one may easily conclude that the path is relevant to the actions of the robot. Timing, noise and vibrations are also some factors that affect the working environment.
