|Description || This module considers the specific concept of design for manufacturing automation including robotic workcell design and integration, robot programming, robot workcell simulation, industrial robot selection based on capability, operational performance, task and environmental suitability and cost. In addition, the concepts of co-operative and collaborative robots will be introduced together with associated sub-systems such as end-effectors (grippers), external sensors, control strategies, parts recognition, parts transfer, and safety systems. |
|Learning Outcomes || By the end of the module students should be able to:|
- Demonstrate a wide understanding of and apply the principles of systems integration for automation.
- Critically appraise and evaluate the performance efficiency of an industrial automation system.
- Design and critically analyse an automated workcell for manufacturing applications.
Select industrial robots based on critical parameters.
- Perform complex simulations of robot operation within a workcell.
