There are many works that robot can carry out but some work only human beings can do. No robot can replace any human being but robots can perform few works more efficiently which are repetitive. All you need to do is program them in the way you want them to work. Many industries have been making use of these robots for many purposes like manufacturing, automotive, biotech, pharmaceutical and machinery.
Invention of Robots has brought about revolutionary changes in the field of industrial manufacturing. In the earlier part of the century humans were engaged in jobs, which were very dangerous and involved serious health hazards, but in 1956, Unimation a company founded by George Devol and Joseph F. Engelberger invented the first robot. These were initially used in industries where it was required that dangers involved in working should be reduced like in spot welding, die casting and forging and then gradually they were employed in areas requiring greater strength and accuracy than human beings.
Industrial robotics – its components and functions. It has been said a while back that industrial robotics improve competence and production for manufacturers. Aside from this however, there are other features and abilities that one would look forward to in the system. Its principal features include environmental interfaces and sensors. The list is also completed by safety features, data management and storage systems. All these major features are connected with the areas within the enterprise.
Market numbers have been estimated based on the average usage of packaging robots for different kinds of applications such as picking, placing, palletizing, de-palletizing, tray packing, case packing and filling among others. Market size and forecast for each segment have been provided in the context of global and regional markets. Market dynamics prevalent in China, Japan, South Korea, North America, and Europe have been taken into account for estimating the growth of the global market. Market estimates for this study have been based on volume, with revenue being derived through regional pricing trends.
The control platform of the robots is PC based. The PC based controller enables the user to make use all the PC technologies for its tasks. The high end technologies like remote diagnosis, user friendly windows interface, OPC server, field bus, Soft PLC etc are used in the patterns of robots which enables any standard user of robots can handle the robots with ease. This makes Kuka Robotics to have a worldwide recognition to its products and makes KUKA the world leader in the pasture of industrial robot production.
