How To: Install An Industrial Robot
May 8, 2011
There are a variety of things to do to prepare for your robotic integration process. Robots.com has outlined some of the most important items to do on the production line. There are also videos available that are designed to help provide information to robotics newbies and experts alike.
“How to Install Your Industrial Robot” is the first in a series of practical application videos designed to provide helpful information for robotics newbies and experts alike.
Here’s a preview of some of the topics covered in the video:
1. Remove protective plastic from robot: This step may seem self-apparent, but first things first.
2. Inspect for damages and missing parts: This step is very important. Industrial robots, controllers, etc., can be damaged in transit. This is also the best time to double check that every single component you purchased has arrived.
3. Move the robot to designated installation area: Skidded industrial robots are easily moved with a forklift. Carefully position your robot in its designated spot in your facility. Make sure (if you haven’t prior to purchasing the robot) that the installation space can withstand the robot’s mass even when the robot is in motion.
4. Bolt the robot in place: Secure the robot base using the appropriate hardware.
5. Connect cables and peripherals: Now you are ready to hook up all cabling, wire harnesses, safety peripherals, tooling, etc.
6. Test the robot’s movement and cycle: At this final installation stage, test each and every component prior to putting the robot into commission. Check operator station controls (E‑Stop, Start, etc.), safety peripherals such as light curtains, connections, tooling functionality, etc. If any abnormal alarms are sounding, resolve them by consulting the robot manual or calling your integrator.
