The various types of robots used in today’s manufacturing industry implement different actuator systems; they may have pivoted jointed segments that spin wheels, use electric motors and solenoids or hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
Gulf Coast Air & Hydraulics serves on-land manufacturing as well as the marine hydraulic and pneumatic operations. The robots we service are designed for heavy and repetitive work, such as an assembly line at a car manufacturer, and the work the robot is performing could be considered boring to humans.
Commonly, the robotic arm is made up of seven metal segments and six joints. The computer controls the robot by rotating the hydraulic or pneumatic pumps connected to each joint; resulting in precise and repetitive movement.
Additional service is required on each robotic device and each will require a special lubrication system. Bottom line is that robots used in a manufacturing setting will need maintenance performed on a schedule in order to continue to function and perform accurately.
