These are most commonly used in Japan, Western Europe and the United States. Some tasks robots perform include loading, casting, drilling, glass making, grinding, heat treatments, monitoring radiation, etc. In modern times, due to rise in complexities and demand for higher and competent productivity, industrial robots are gaining popularity. The use of robots has helped industrial development to grow in leaps and bounds, well beyond expectations.
Robots are also more reliable and secure than humans. They do exactly what they are instructed to do and nothing more. A central control person can manage up to 30 Robots, each performing the work of between 2 to 4 staff. This significantly reduces management costs and improves capacity planning accuracy.
Robots can act as assistants for staff, as stand-alone workstation workers or as a complete virtual workforce, working from virtual desktops within a data center. Choosing the best fit configuration for your business is a critical component of a successful strategy and optimum long term results.
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.
Cleaning robot is an autonomous robot that cleans floor, windows, lawns, and others. It is employed in mopping, UV sterilization, and other purposes in household as well as industrial applications. Cleaning robot minimizes human efforts and saves time, economical and electricity. People with disability can use cleaning robot as an alternative for expensive housekeeping services. Technological advancement has made robots more intelligent and they are able to detect different amount of dirt at different spots.
A common application for 3D vision systems is the production of crankshaft castings in the automotive industry, where they instruct robots to position castings ready for the next stage of assembly.
