Robot Applied Automation System Design and Installation
A robot is a multi-functional, reprogrammable manipulator designed to move special parts through materials, parts, tools or variable programmed movements to perform various tasks.” The most comprehensive definition of industrial robot and classification of robot types are specified in the ISO 8373 standard. A robot is defined as: “An auto-controlled, reprogrammable multi-purpose manipulator with three or more programmable axes, which can be stationary or mobile, used in industrial applications.”
Reprogrammable: Programmed movements or auxiliary functions can be changed without physical changes.
Multipurpose: The ability to adapt to a different application by physical changes.
Physical changes: From the programming bowl, ROMs etc. Changing the mechanical structure or control system, excluding changes such as
Axis: Direction used to indicate robot motion in linear or rotational mode
