Read New up to Date Market Research on Recent Developments Such as Micro Grippers for the Optolectronics Industry.DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c47701) has announced the addition of Robot robot or automaton (ôtäm`ətän') mechanical device designed to perform the work generally done by a human being. Grippers to their offering.
Since robotic ro·bot·ic
Relating to, characteristic of, or employing robots. prehension PREHENSION. The lawful taking of a thing with an intent to, assert a right in it. is widely used in all sectors of manufacturing industry, this book fills the need for a comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of the topic. As such, this is the first text to address both developers and users, dealing as it does with the function, design and use of industrial robot An industrial robot is officially defined by ISO as an automatically controlled, reprogrammable, multipurpose manipulator programmable in three or more axes. grippers. The book includes both traditional methods and many more recent developments such as micro grippers for the optolectronics industry.
Written by authors from academia, industry and consulting, it begins by covering the four basic categories of robotic prehension before expanding into sections dealing with endeffector design and control, robotic manipulation and kinematics kinematics: see dynamics.
Branch of physics concerned with the geometrically possible motion of a body or system of bodies, without consideration of the forces involved. . Later chapters go on to describe how these various gripping techniques can be used for a common industrial aim, with details of related topics such as: kinematics, part separation, sensors, tool excahnge and compliance. The whole is rounded off with specific examples and case studies. With more than 570 figures, this practical book is all set to become the standard for advanced students, researchers and manufacturing engineers The profession of manufacturing engineer is defined as a person having the education and experience to understand and control manufacturing systems such as processes and/or automation, including industrial processes and equipment used to produce goods. , as well as designers and project managers seeking practical descriptions of robot endeffectors and their applications.
Gareth Monkman is Professor of Robotics robotics, science and technology of general purpose, programmable machine systems. Contrary to the popular fiction image of robots as ambulatory machines of human appearance capable of performing almost any task, most robotic systems are anchored to fixed positions and Automation at the Fachhochschule Regensburg in Germany. Besides authoring a large number of academic papers, he also holds numerous patents in the field of gripper technology.
