The Research of Industrial Robots Design Based on Synchronous Technology


Article Preview

Industrial robots are widely applied in all kinds of automatic production line. It is the most important members in the family of robots. To improve the product quality and the precision of the robots, in addition to control strictly the production techniques and monitor its manufacturing process, the most important is to improve the design level and the design efficiency. In this paper, a new type of automatic four degrees of freedom industrial robots will be studied by using Solid Edge ST4 3 d synchronous modeling technology. In the process of design, synchronous modeling, parallel design, cooperative modeling technique and Top-down Assembly Modeling technology are combined with during the design. The whole product modeling design has included module and subsystem, has accomplished chassis module, and turn arm module and grab module design. The key point in this paper is that synchronous modeling technology is used in the three dimensional modeling the design application, and shows that the technology in different modules and the union between different designers. The results show that all the technical application above can improve the design efficiency, reduce design error and design iterative process, thus greatly improve the product quality and production efficiency
