Integrated Robotics: System Elements, Types and Creation

Date Added: October 19, 2009 07:25:33 PM
Category: "A": Automation & Robotics

Integrated robotics is no different from other industrial systems. It also depends upon the elements and system types to make it render its task successfully. Each component should be carefully designed and planned so that the investment of the company will not be put to waste.

Elements are defined as parts that make the system work. The different types are the actual output of the connection of these elements. Using an integrated system, there are different factors to consider when creating integrated robotics. Look at all these facets of the system through the foregoing facts.

Elements in integrated robotic systems

Different robotic systems have varied elements. But all have common parts to consider in the assembly. The most basic ones are clutches, bearings, gears and springs. These components work together in order to produce quality and efficient performance for the entire system.

When industrial robotics is being considered, computers dictate the functioning of the parts. These systems also have additional components including that of the arm and sensors. These are essential in different phases of the manufacturing task while obtaining feedback from the controller.

Industrial robot types

There are four basic types for integrated robotics. First is the programmable robot that works with the presence of commands stored in a certain database. A variation to this is the second type of industrial robot known as the computer-programmable robot. This one works with the help of computers.

There are also servo and non-servo robots. The servo robot works through the use of arms and manipulators in order to pick an object up or place it down. It also has the capability of transferring one object from a location to another. The non-servo robot functions in this same way but do not depend on manipulators and arms.

Integrated robotic system creation

There are three factors to consider when creating an integrated or industrial robotic system – price, complexity and performance. Putting these three considerations together, the ultimate goal of the system is produced that is to create a high-performing robot that can fulfill complex tasks at a lower price. However, none of these factors should be compromised for the other.

The core of creating integrated robotics is to focus attention on joining components together to make them function for the better. In other systems, software applications are also deemed necessary. The software should be carefully planned and assessed first before they are to be adapted by the industry.
