An industrial robot is a robot system that is used in manufacturing companies. An industrial robot is automated, capable of movement on multiple axis and programmable too. Typical applications of robots comprise painting, welding, disassembly, packaging and labeling, pick and place for printing circuit boards, product inspection; all accomplished with speed and accuracy. They can be of help in handling materials in production line. The most commonly used robot for industrial automation, include articulated robot’s gantry robot and SCARA robots.
International Federation of Robotics (IFR) In 2015 estimated that about 1.64 million industrial robots were in operation globally. Some robot a designed to carry out specific repetitive actions with variations and with a high degree of precision. The earliest industrial robot was completed by Bill Griffith P. Taylor in 1837. Robotics was achieved using perforated paper tape to boost solenoids, that will enable the movement of the crane’s controller heights. In the context of universal automation, my kinds of industrial robots would fall into the class of robot arm.
