The handling robot is an industrial robot that can perform automated handling operations.
The earliest handling robots appeared in the United States in 1960, and the Versatran and Unimate robots were first used for handling operations.
Handling is the process of holding a workpiece with one device, moving from one machining position to another.
The handling robot can be equipped with different end effectors to complete the workpiece handling work in various shapes and states, which greatly reduces the heavy manual labor of human beings.
More than 100,000 handling robots are used in the world, and they are widely used in automatic loading and unloading of machine tools, automated production lines for presses, automatic assembly lines, palletizing, and containers.
Some developed countries have developed the maximum amount of manual handling, and the excess must be completed by the handling robot.
Handling robots are a high-tech in the field of modern automatic control.
It involves mechanics, mechanics, electrical hydraulic pressure technology, automatic control technology, sensor technology, single-chip technology and computer technology.
It has become an important part of the modern machinery manufacturing production system.
It has the advantage of being able to program various expected tasks.
In terms of its structure and performance, it has the respective advantages of people and machines, especially the artificial intelligence and adaptability.
