Abstract

Industrial robots are machines whose functions can be programmed and which can be put to general use in production areas. This is not an exact definition and many numerical control (NC)-machines comply with it. To clarify the term “general use”, this presumes the following features:
  • the aibility to move a gripper or tool to any point of the working area (random positioning)

  • the choice of any orientation of the gripper or tool at a given point (random orientation)

  • to pick up and put down almost any object or tool (within physical constraints)
