Robotics systems, an integral part of almost all manufacturing processes, are classified on the basis of their application. In this article we will learn about the main categories of this classification.
Traditionally, mechanical engineers created machines with many working parts powered by some sort of energy, whether that be steam or electricity. Mechanical Engineers also play a part in the design and production of robots. This important field involves a blend of many different engineering skills, including electrical and software engineering, as they design robots with the ability to automate themselves. Learn more about this fascinating and ever-growing field.
Ever wondered how a robot is able to perform tasks after taking commands from the user? It is the Robot’s Voice Recognition system that identifies the words and performs the desired action. Want to know how? Read the article inside.
Have you ever wondered how a robot visualizes an object and then performs an action related to it? What is it in a robot that allows it to see and identify various objects? Don’t know the answers? Know all of them in the article inside.
This article will explain as to how a robot using a vision system enables an object to be perceived and identified. The system uses various electronic devices to visualize a single object. Read more inside to find out how exactly this happens.
Finding the position and orientation of the links of a manipulator required for attaining a certain position and orientation of the end-effector is just not sufficient. We also want to know the corresponding variation of velocity of the links and joints with the motion of the end-effector.
In the kinematic design and analysis of manipulators, it is required to find the position and orientation of the end-effector for given values of joint parameters. Sometimes the position to be attained is given and possible values of joint parameters to attain that are to be found.
To study the mechanics of robotic manipulators comprehensively and then apply it for the mechanical synthesis of the manipulators, we will first look at the basic topics of mechanics involved in the mechanics of manipulators. Future articles will deal each of them in detail.
This article explains the future of robotics, including their usage in home, factories, hospitals and biomimetics. Presently it appears more like fiction, but in the next few decades all this will become fact.
Robots have many advantages, and production units which do not obtain their services will be left behind and will not be able to compete in quality, production, and cost.
Robots consist of a variety of high tech components which are designed for accuracy, speed and convenience of operation. Some are for general purpose usage, while some are custom made to handle specific parts. The main components are the main body, end effectors, and grippers.
Robots are being extensively utilized in the automotive industry, and in the near future, their application, because of the quality and accuracy produced, will spread to many more industries,
Robots have revolutionized the manufacturing industry by increasing the production rate and improving accuracy in production. Robots are being used in a variety of production units, especially automotive units, for carrying out drilling, welding, bolt tightening, etc.
Articulated Robots are no doubt the best robots for assembly and packaging applications. SCARA and PUMA are the most widely used articulated robots in industries for assembly and packaging and in academia for research and analysis. Read more about these variants of articulated robots SCARA and PUMA.
Robots used in industries mostly perform the tasks of picking and placing different things. These functions are similar to that of a human arm, hold something and then place and fit that at the require spot. Such robotic arms are also called as manipulators. They have different types of Base Bodies.
