Study Notes

Robot Types

  • Cartesian robots are used for applications requiring simple movements, such as assembly, injection molding tool unloading, or palletizing.
  • Cartesian robots are also used for machine tool servicing (maintenance, repair, optimization of lathes, milling machines, etc.).
  • Cartesian robots are used for applications such as spray painting and arc welding.
  • Cartesian robots are used for assembly automation and pick and place operations.
  • Cartesian robots can move linearly in the X, Y, Z axis.

Robot Characteristics

  • Stationary robots can rotate from their stationary point and move in the X and Y axis.
  • Stationary robots are stationary and revolve around their axes to perform tasks.
  • Stationary robots can revolve around their axes but can move their end tool in the Y axis.
  • Robots that can move linearly in the X, Y, Z direction, while also being able to change the angle of their grippers.

Trajectory Methods

  • Point-to-Point (PTP) trajectory method is used for assembly, palletizing, and pick and place operations.
  • Continuous Path (CP) trajectory method is used for spray painting and arc welding on a moving conveyor belt.
  • Linear trajectory method is used for tasks requiring linear movement.

Programming Methods

  • Offline programming method is used for programming robots for assembly operations.
  • Teach-in method is used for programming robots for pick and place operations.
  • Offline programming method is used for programming robots for welding, spray painting, and castings.
