What is Industrial Robot?
An industrial robot is a type of robot that is specifically designed and built for use in industrial settings, such as factories, warehouses, and other manufacturing environments. These robots are typically larger and more powerful than robots used in other applications and are capable of performing a wide range of tasks, including assembly, welding, painting, material handling, and inspection.
Industrial robots typically have one or more arms with a gripper or other end effector at the end, which is used to perform the specific task that the robot has been programmed to perform. They are able to move in multiple directions and can be programmed to perform a wide variety of movements, such as linear and rotary motions.
Industrial robots are typically controlled by a computer or other electronic controller, which uses a variety of sensors, cameras, and other devices to monitor the environment and the position of the robot. They can also be integrated with other equipment, such as conveyors and other machines, to perform more complex tasks.
Industrial robots are widely used in manufacturing industries, such as automotive, electronics, food and beverage, and plastics, where they are employed for repetitive and physically demanding tasks, such as material handling, assembly and welding. They can also be found in logistics, packaging, and even some non-manufacturing field such as in service industries and entertainment.
There are many different types of industrial robots, such as articulated robots, SCARA robots, parallel robots, and delta robots, each with its own unique features and capabilities, to suit different industries and applications. They can be programmed by various languages such as G-code, Ladder Logic and others.
Overall, industrial robots are highly advanced machines that are designed to work in harsh and hazardous environments, they can perform a wide range of tasks in industrial settings, with great accuracy and repeatability, making them an ideal solution for increasing efficiency, accuracy and productivity in different industries.
