How to Choose an Industrial Robotic Arm?

1. Brief Introduction of Industrial Robotic Arm

It can imitate certain motion functions of human hands and arms, and is used as an automatic operating device for grasping, transporting objects or operating tools according to a fixed program. Industrial robotic arms are the earliest industrial robots and modern robots. They can not only replace people's heavy labor to realize the mechanization and automation of production, but also can operate in harmful environments to protect personal safety. Therefore, they are widely used in machinery manufacturing, metallurgy, electronics, light industry and atomic energy.


2. How to Choose an Industrial Robotic Arm?


(1) Degree of Freedom


The degree of freedom of the industrial robotic arm is the number of axes of the industrial robotic arm. The more the number of axes, the higher the degree of freedom of the industrial robotic arm, the stronger the flexibility of the industrial robotic arm, and the more complex the actions it can do. The greater the number of axes, the greater the flexibility. However, the more the number of axes, the more complicated the programming work that needs to be done, which depends on the specific work.


(2)  Repeatability


This parameter directly reflects the accuracy of industrial robotic arm. If an industrial robotic arm repeats an action, there will be an error when it reaches a position. The higher the accuracy, the smaller the error. Generally, the error of an industrial robotic arm is within ± 0.5mm.


(3) Protection Level


If the environment where the industrial robotic arm is used is dusty or water will affect the operation of the industrial robotic arm, be sure to study the protection level of the industrial robotic arm. The adaptability of different industrial robotic arm to various environments is different. Take this condition into consideration and choose the industrial robotic arm that matches the working environment.


(4) Load


The load of the industrial robotic arm determines the maximum weight that the industrial robotic arm can carry when it is working. It is necessary to have an understanding of the weight of the accessories on the production line, and then select the appropriate weight.


(5) Maximum Range of Motion


Every industrial robotic arm has the largest range of motion and the farthest distance it can reach. At this time, you need to consider whether its range of motion meets your needs.
