An industrial robot is a machine designated to move materials, parts, and tools, or execute high quality, precision, or repetitive tasks in many fields of industry and manufacturing environments.

A general Robot System includes:

  • Robot manipulator - contains the moving parts of the robot.
  • Controller - contains and executes all programs and logic and contains the power supply.
  • End effector - is mounted at the end of the robot manipulator and serves for different purposes (pick and place gripper, welding, etc.).

There are many types of robot manipulators dependent on the robot’s purpose. The number of axes and structure of the robot can vary with its use.

Robotics Systems Solutions

Many industrial facilities include multiple industrial robots integrated with the industrial process. A Robot Integrated Process is characterized by flexibility, better quality, and reduced cycle time and cost of the final product.

Some of the ways we integrate a robot in the control system include:

  • EtherNet/IP
  • ProfiNet
  • OPC server

Machine Vision Solutions

Machine vision scanner cameras (2D and 3D) represent a way the robot senses the environment in many control systems. The scanner cameras give the robot information of an object’s position, orientation, size, and volume, and can recognize shapes of the objects handled.

Machine vision scanners represent a useful sensor element in situations where information about the robot’s work area is needed.
