PRESENTATION ON ROBOTICS Presented by: Akshay Wadalkar
Robots• Robotics is the branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation and application of robots.• Robot is a reprogrammable multifunctional manipulator designed to move materials parts, tools, or special devices through variable programmed motions for the performance of variety of tasks.
ROBOT ANOTOMY• The manipulator or an industrial robot is constructed by a series of joints and links.• Robot anotomy deals with the types and the size of joints and links and other aspects of the manipulator’s physical construction.
CLASSIFICATION OF ROBOTS• Depending upon the physical configuration – Cartesian robot: In this robot consist of three sliding joints. Out of which one is linear and other two are orthogonal. – Cylindrical robot: In this robot consist of a vertical column relative to which an arm assembly moves up and down.
– Polar robot: In this sliding arm of body can rotate about both vertical and horizontal axis– Jointed arm robot: It has a structure swiveled about the base with shoulder joint and elbow joint etc.
• Depending upon the motion characteristics – Point to point robot – Continuous path robot• Depending upon the types of control used – Servo control robots – Non-Servo control robots
APPLICATION OF ROBOT• Industrial application – Used for material handling. – Processing operations like • Welding • Spray painting • Casting • Heat treatment • Finishing operation – Assembly – Inspection
• Non-Industrial application – Space application – Agricultural application – Ocean exploration. – Defense – House-hold jobs etc.
Advantages of Robots• Robotics and automations can increase safety, reliability, production amount, profit, quality and quantity of products in a lot of cases.• They can do jobs in dangerous situations and save lives of thousands of people.• They do not care about the comfort of their environment. Human needs such as hunger or depression have no meanings for them. They do not get tired.• Their accuracy is so high and is in the range of millimeters or even micrometers.
Disadvantages• Robots can not respond properly at the times of emergency and danger.• They are expensive.• They Have limited duties. They can only do what they have been ordered to do.
