Robotics Designing the Mechanisms for Automated Machinery :: Book Details : This book provides information on the stages of machinery design for automated manufacturing and offers a step-by-step process for making it optimal. This is illustrated by numerous examples of technical concepts taken from different manufacturing domains. The author, being a university teacher, sees that teaching curricula and textbooks most often do not provide the answers to the questions: How are things built? How do they work? How does one best approach the design process for a specific machine? Most textbooks emphasize computation theories and techniques and deal less with the physical objects that the theories describe.
Robotics: Designing the Mechanisms for Automated Machinery is an essential addition to the toolbox of any engineer or hobbyist involved in the design of any type of robot or automated mechanical system. It is the only book available that takes the reader through a step-by step design process in this rapidly advancing specialty area of machine design.This book provides the professional engineer and student with important and detailed methods and examples of how to design the mechanical parts of robots and automated systems. Most robotics and automation books today emphasis the electrical and control aspects of design without any practical coverage of how to design and build the components, the machine or the system. The author draws on his years of industrial design experience to show the reader the design process by focusing on the real, physical parts of robots and automated systems.
Robotics Designing the Mechanisms for Automated Machinery by Ben Zion Sandler
For engineers and technical students, this book explains how to approach and solve automatic manufacturing machine-design problems. The author details the methodology of the design process and provides the calculations needed to achieve proper results when applying the design to a real machine, as well as basic information on universal machine devices and the concepts on which they are based Annotation.
