Robotic systems have wires and cables that run from several different areas of the robot to the controller and back again. By using wiring and cabling harnesses, companies are able to group these cables and wires together in a way that allows there to be several large ports or plugs for a set of wiring, as opposed to having to plug each wire or cable into its own specific port.

Servo amplifiers, or servo amps for short, are drives that are used to power electronic servomechanisms, such as servo motors. A servo amp transfers signals from the command module of the robot, and translates them for the servo motor, so the motor knows how much it should move at any given time.

AC motors and encoders are two important parts of a robot. They give the robot purpose. Without them, there would be no motion, and without motion, the robot has no purpose – unless, of course, someone wants a large industrial robotics statue for their living room or workplace. An AC motor is a motor that is powered by an alternating electric current. Until recently, an alternating current motor was not the best option for robotic operation.

Robots are made up of several different parts, and those parts all work toward making sure that the robot is able to operate in a smooth and precise manner. That is the express purpose of robot harmonics and harmonic drives.

A robot arm moves in a way similar to a human arm, working to perform a task. However, without a brain, the human arm is unable to receive the information necessary to perform that process. For Motoman robots, the controller is much like the brain of the robot system – and the Motoman DX200 is one of the more powerful “brains” on the market.

While welding automation has been around for decades, it has only become common recently. Companies like Motoman Robotics continually work to improve the quality and standards of their robots. This Motoman tradition holds true with the Motoman MA1440 robot, a high-speed welding robot with thru-arm design, and several other advantages.

Riveting used to be one of the most common process when assembling automobiles, airplanes, boxcars, ships, etc. However, over the years, resistance welding has become more adaptable for transportation assembly with the introduction of robotics. Now, by investing in a robotic resistance welder, manufacturers are able to speed up the process, while also saving money on materials by doing away with the rivets. Decades ago, riveting was a common trade, just like welding.

Welding is one of the most common applications in the industrial world of metal working. While robots have been welding for many years, many applications have the same problem – they can’t weld metals that have vastly different properties. That is where electron beam welding robots come into play.

When industrial robot companies like ABB Robotics began producing palletizing robots for factories, it changed the entire end-of-line production processes forever. ABB makes several robot models capable of palletizing a wide array of products, and by using ABB palletizing robots, manufacturers are going to get a faster, more accurate palletizing process that is also safer for workers. It is obvious that speeding up a palletizing process is ideal for manufacturers.

Packaging is one of the most common uses for robotics systems on the market today. KUKA Robotics, one of the leading manufacturers of robotic technology, has created several different packaging robot models, which span the packaging needs of the market today. One of the major industries where precision packaging is extremely important is the food industry. Packaging can be a tedious job for human workers, and when a job is dull and repetitive, sometimes workers may have more errors.
