Advances in Automation

  1. 1. Advances in Automation By: Keifer Rutledge & Michael Zimmerman
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Automation is automatic machines for example robots </li></ul><ul><li>Industrial robots </li></ul><ul><li>The parts of the robot </li></ul><ul><li>Programming of a robot </li></ul>
  3. 3. Where they are used, why? <ul><li>They are familiar entities in Chemical processing plants, automobile assembly lines, and electronics manufacturing facilities </li></ul>
  4. 4. Industrial Robots <ul><li>Industrial Robots are a critical component of factory automation. Very few of them bear any resemblance to the humanlike android pictured in science fiction movies </li></ul>What people think of as robots Real manufacturing robot
  5. 5. MainBody/Parts <ul><li>Regardless of their size or function, industirial robots have three main parts. The main body of the robot is called the manipulator </li></ul>
