CAM system for articulated-type industrial robot


In this chapter, a CAM system for an articulated-type industrial robot RV1A is proposed in order to raise the relationship between a CAD/CAM and industrial robots spread to industrial manufacturing fields. A simple and flexible CAM system is designed from the viewpoint of the cooperation between CL data and robotic servo system. The CAM system required for an industrial robot is realized as an integrated system including not only a conventional main-processor of CAM but also a robotic servo system and kinematics, so that the RV1A can be directly controlled without any conventional teaching process. The basic design of the CAM system and experimental results are shown using the industrial ...
