Industrial robots are programmable machines designed to carry out tasks in manufacturing plants or other industrial settings. They are often used to automate repetitive or dangerous tasks that would be difficult or unsafe for human workers to perform.
Industrial robots are utilized not only in the automotive industry, but also in a variety of other fields such as the electrical & electronic industry and the food industry. They are used on-site for a wide array of purposes including welding, painting, assembling, material handling and palletizing, and in order to adapt to each operation, these robots come in many different types.
Also known as polar coordinate robots, these robots have two rotary joints and one linear joint, and are typically used for tasks such as assembly and handling.
Cylindrical coordinate robot:
These robots have two rotary joints and one linear joint, and are typically used for applications such as welding and painting.
Cartesian coordinate robot:
Also known as rectangular coordinate robots, these robots have three linear joints that move in a straight line along the X, Y, and Z axes.
These robots have rotary joints and are typically used for tasks that require a high degree of flexibility and movement, such as welding and painting.
Selective compliance assembly robot arm (SCARA):
Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm (SCARA) robots have two parallel rotary joints and are used for high-speed assembly and packaging tasks.
Parallel link robot:
These robots are designed to have multiple points of contact with the workpiece, and are typically used for tasks that require a high degree of precision, such as pick-and-place operations.
Collaborative robots, also known as cobots, are specifically designed to operate safely alongside humans, without the need for safety barriers or cages. These robots are highly flexible and can be easily programmed to adapt to various tasks and environments, making them a versatile solution for different industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, and logistics. Collaborative robots are capable of performing tasks such as assembly, packaging, inspection, and material handling. Their ease of use and adaptability make them a popular choice for businesses looking to improve efficiency and productivity while ensuring the safety of their workers
