Elements, Structures and Application of Industrial Robots

  • Dragan Hristić


A great majority of contemporary industrial robots, i.e. their mechanical part, frequently referred to as the manipulator, are in the form of bigger or smaller articulatory (“anthropomorphic”, “arthropoid”) or portal (“gantry”) hoists. These working machines, mostly used for manipulating workpieces, are frequently known as “manipulation robots”, although this is not applicable in a great number of cases (welding, grinding and drilling with a carried electrical tool, etc.). The normal end or manipulator tip is in the form of a terminal organ for gripping in the form of the so-called gripper which can have a diversified design, which will be discussed below.
