This book addresses the use of robots for flexible automation from a manufacturing systems viewpoint. It gives the reader an overview of what industrial robots were and how they were integrated into an automated manufacturing system. Each major part/subsystem of the robot then is explored (e.g. grippers, controllers, geometry) in full chapter detail. Emphasis in this edition, is placed on the hardware and software that support the implementation of automated work-cells and manufacturing systems. robot classification, automated work-cells and CIM systems, end-of-arm tooling, automation sensors, work-cell support systems and programming, robot and system integration, justification and applications of work-cells, safety, human interface and west electric case study. robotics technicians engineers or the industrial reader who wants an introduction to flexible automation systems using robotics.

From the Publisher:

This text addresses the use of robots for flexible automation from a manufacturing systems viewpoint -- i.e., how robots interface with all the manufacturing hardware and software. It contains an abundance of industrial applications, and weaves a major case study throughout -- allowing students to follow -- and join -- an automation design team as they work through each stage of the design process. An accompanying disk and video provide project data.

From the Back Cover:

Employment trends in the field of robotics have changed over the years. Engineers and technicians no longer concentrate solely on robot technology; instead, they are capable of working on the entire production system. For this reason, any training in robotics must reflect this emphasis on the total system. The need for personnel who can design, develop, implement, and provide support for automated production systems with robots is significant and is growing.

This fifth edition of Introduction to Robotics in CIM Systems includes information about the hardware, software, and programming that support the implementation of automated work cells and manufacturing systems.

New in the fifth edition of the text:

  • Goals and objectives listed at the beginning of each chapter.
  • A career spotlight highlights careers related to the concepts being covered in every chapter.
  • Updated information on safety and troubleshooting.
  • A section outlining program commands for the Yaskawa robot.
  • Major updates and additions throughout.

Instructors who are using this book for a course should obtain the accompanying Instructor's Manual (ISBN 0-15-060245-0).
