Investigation of Synchronous Accuracy of Dual Arm Motion of Industrial Robot
Recently, new needs have emerged to control not only linear motion but also rotational motion in high-accuracy manufacturing fields. Many five-axis-controlled machining centres are therefore in use. However, one problem has been the difficulty of creating flexible manufacturing systems with methods based on the use of these machine tools. On the other hand, the industrial dual-arm robot has gained attention as a new way to achieve accurate linear and rotational motion in an attempt to control a working plate like a machine tool table. In the present report, a cooperating dual-arm motion is demonstrated to make it feasible to perform stable operation control, such as controlling the working plate to keep a ball rolling around a circular path on it. As a result, we investigated the influence of each axis motion error on a ball-rolling path.
