You will learn everything you need to know in this guide – let’s get started:
Table of Contents
1. What is an industrial robot?
Industrial robots are multi-joint manipulators or multi-degree-of-freedom mechanical devices that are widely used in the industrial field. They have a certain degree of automation and can rely on their own power energy and control capabilities to achieve various industrial processing and manufacturing functions.
Industrial robots are widely used in various industrial fields such as electronics, logistics, and chemicals.
2. What types of industrial robots are there?
There are six types of industrial robots：
- Articulated robots
- Cartesian coordinate robots
- Cylindrical coordinate robots
- Spherical coordinate robots
- SCARA robots
- Delta robots
3. What is an articulated robot?
Articulated robots are the most common industrial robots.
They look like a human arm, which is why they are also called robotic arm or manipulator arm.
Their articulations with several degrees of freedom allow the articulated arms a wide range of movements.
An articulated robot is a robot with rotary joints (e.g. a legged robot or an industrial robot).
Articulated robots can range from simple two-jointed structures to systems with 10 or more interacting joints and materials. They are powered by a variety of means, including electric motors.
Some types of robots, such as robotic arms, can be articulated or non-articulated.
4. What is an cartesian coordinate robots？
A Cartesian coordinate robot (also called linear robot) is an industrial robot whose three principal axes of control are linear (i.e. they move in a straight line rather than rotate) and are at right angles to each other.
The three sliding joints correspond to moving the wrist up-down, in-out, back-forth. Among other advantages, this mechanical arrangement simplifies the Robot control arm solution. It has high reliability and precision when operating in three-dimensional space.
As a robot coordinate system, it is also effective for horizontal travel and for stacking bins.
5. What is an cylindrical coordinate robots？
The cylindrical coordinate robots are characterized by their rotary joint at the base and at least one prismatic joint connecting its links.
They can move vertically and horizontally by sliding. The compact effector design allows the robot to reach tight workspaces without any loss of speed.
6. What is an spherical coordinate robots?
Spherical coordinate robots only have rotary joints.
They are one of the first robots to have been used in industrial applications.
They are commonly used for machine tending in die-casting, plastic injection and extrusion, and for welding.
7. What is an SCARA robots?
SCARA is an acronym for Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm.
SCARA robots are recognized by their two parallel joints which provide movement in the X-Y plane.Rotating shafts are positioned vertically at the effector..
SCARA robots are used for jobs that require precise lateral movements.
They are ideal for assembly applications.
SCARAs are generally faster than comparable Cartesian robot systems.
Their single pedestal mount requires a small footprint and provides an easy, unhindered form of mounting.
On the other hand, SCARAs can be more expensive than comparable Cartesian systems and the controlling software requires inverse kinematics for linear interpolated moves.
However, this software typically comes with the SCARA and is usually transparent to the end-user.
8. What is an Delta robots？
A Delta robot is a type of parallel robot that consists of three arms connected to universal joints at the base.
The key design feature is the use of parallelograms in the arms, which maintains the orientation of the end effector, by contrast to Stewart platform that can change the orientation of its end effector.
Delta robots have popular usage in picking and packaging in factories because they can be quite fast, some executing up to 300 picks per minute.
9. What are the components of an industrial robot?
Generally speaking, industrial robots are composed of three major parts and six subsystems.
The three major parts are the mechanical part, the sensing part and the control part.
The six subsystems can be divided into mechanical structure system, drive system, perception system, robot-environment interaction system, human-computer interaction system and control system.
10. What are the application fields of industrial robots?
- Handling: Capable of manipulating products as diverse as car doors to eggs, industrial robots are fast and powerful as well as dexterous and sensitive. Applications include pick and place from conveyor line to packaging, and machine tending, where raw materials are fed by the robot into processing equipment such as with injection molding machines, CNC mills and lathes and presses.
- Palletizing: Industrial robots load corrugated cartons or other packaged items onto a pallet in a defined pattern. Robotic palletizers rely on a fixed position or overhead gantry robot with special tooling that interfaces with the individual load components, building simple to complex layer patterns on top of a pallet that maximize the load’s stability during transport. There are three primary types of palletizing: inline or layer forming, depalletizing or unloading, and mixed case.
- Cutting: Due to their dangerous nature, laser, plasma and water jet cutters are frequently used with robots. Hundreds of different cutting paths can be programmed into the robot, which produces precise accuracy and path following with greater flexibility than most dedicated cutting machines.
- Finishing: Multi-axis robots can grind, trim, fettle, polish and clean almost any part made in any material for a consistent quality finish.
- Sealing and gluing: To apply sealant or glue, a robot follows a path accurately with good control over speed while maintaining a consistent bead of the adhesive substrate. Robots are frequently used for sealing applications in the car industry to seal in windows, as well as in packaging processes for automated sealing of corrugated cases of product.
- Spraying: Due to the volatile and hazardous nature of solvent-based paints and coatings, robots are used in spray applications to minimize human contact. Paint robots typically have thin arms because they don’t carry much weight, but need maximum access and movement fluidity to mimic a human’s application technique.
- Welding: Used for both seam (MIG, TIG, arc and laser) and spot welding, robots produce precise welds, as well as control parameters such as power, wire feed and gas flow.
12. How to use industrial robots?
Robots are used in a variety of ways throughout manufacturing and distribution.
- Load building: Assembling a pallet load of products at the end of a production line
- Manufacturing: Performing processing and assembly functions to work-in-process
- Quality control: Testing and inspection procedures deploy robots for repetitive or dangerous work
- Transportation: Loading pallets prior to shipping
- Warehousing: Removing received products from pallets and routing them to storage locations within a facility
13. What are the benefits of industrial robots?
Industrial robots provide a variety of benefits:
- Accuracy – Robotic palletizers are software-directed for proper load placement
- Flexibility – Robotic systems can be re-purposed for other uses; end effectors can be switched out to handle different load types
- Lower labor costs – Automated pallet building reduces worker strain and frees operators for other tasksv
- Quiet operation – Servo-based, robotic palletizers generate low noise levels
- Reduced product damage – Gentle handling prevents package and product damage

The following aspects affect the price of industrial robots:
The factor that determines how much product and weight an industrial robot can handle at one time is the payload.
Using different robotic arms, you will get different payloads. The higher the payload you use, the more investment is required for the robotic arm you choose.
(2). End of arm tooling(EOAT)
The end of arm tooling features a gripper that is attached at the end of the arm. There are different types of grippers to invest in. Depending on the type you want, the prices will significantly vary.
(3). Robot Size
The size of your robot depends on the amount of work it is designed to take on. This means that the larger the robotic arm, the higher the price to be paid.
(4). Safety Features
Robotic arms will come with different safety features designed to ensure that you can easily use the arms. Depending on the safety you want for your robotic arms, you’ll spend a bit more as the features increase.
