Articulated Robots - More Axes Equal More Possibilities
When people speak of industrial robots today, they are usually talking about articulated robots. These are the robots that are most commonly in use in factories worldwide. There are many different companies that produce articulated robots, including FANUC, Motoman, KUKA, Universal Robots, and ABB robotics companies.
Articulated robotic systems usually have four to six axes, but they can have up to 10. These robots have more degrees of freedom than any other robots on the market, which gives the manufacturer more versatility and makes them more appealing. An articulated robot can be used for dozens of different welding, material handling, dispensing and material removal applications.
So, why choose an articulated robot? Well, that is pretty simple. An articulated robot, like the FANUC R-2000iA, is a robot that can be used for several different applications, as mentioned above, and has a large work envelope. These robots are able to improve a company’s productivity through improved speed and accuracy, which also improves the quality of the product being produced. Also, because of their popularity and their longevity, articulated robot systems are dropping in price, making them more affordable than ever before for other markets.
