Nowadays, an automation of manufactoring processes is an indispensable part of any serial production. The main reason why companies decide for automation, is to increase a profit and to relive workers. By optimizing the production processes, we would like to rise the productivity, increse the accuracy and to improve the product quality. Besides, we would like to protect the workers against dangerous and difficult working conditions. Therefore, many robots work in the enviroment with the presence of heat, dirt, and poison.
The thesis presents the development and operation of a robotic work cell for tending machine center, which was developed at LTH Castings d.o.o. for their own use in production. In the following chapters of the thesis I present the entire system of robotic working cells, robotic cell hardware, equipment and control software. Particular emphasis is placed on electric design and development of algorithms for automatic operation of the robot cell.
