Industrial robots are automated, flexible components used for a wide range of applications within manufacturing systems. This Industrial Robotics program covers the array of robot configurations and features segments on: robot anatomy & types, robotic programming, and sensors.
The Robot Anatomy & Types segment covers axes of motion, robot work envelop, major robot classifications, including: rectangular arm robots, SCARA robots, and articulated/jointed arm robots, and robot end effectors and gripping devices. These end effectors include welding guns, paint nozzles, and machining tools.
The Robotic Programming segment covers both on-line & off-line robotic programming.
The Sensors segment covers the common contact and non-contact types of sensors used to assist industrial robots.
