Applications of Industrial Robots. Technical and Economical Constraints

  • Nils Mårtensson
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 11)


The first industrial robot was introduced in industry as a universal handling machine some twenty years ago. Already in the late sixties, industrial robots were the center of great expectations. The only Swedish manufacturer at that time was sure that more than 40 000 robots would be working in Swedish industry alone before 1980! Also in very late years we have seen forecasts of hundreds of thousands of robots being active in the world industry during this decade.
