All rights reserved. 2007 VOLUME 23 ISSUE 1 July 2007 Short paper 87 of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering The signal connections in robot integrated manufacturing systems D. Reclik*, G. Kost, J. Świder Institute of Engineering Processes Automation and Integrated Manufacturing Systems, Silesian University of Technology, ul. Konarskiego 18a, 44-100 Gliwice, Poland * Corresponding author: E-mail address: [email protected] Received 21.03.2007; published in revised form 01.07.2007 Manufacturing and processing AbstrAct Purpose: The main goal of this paper is that, the robot integrated manufacturing systems are more popular and useful in the industry. Moreover, the communication in those systems might be realized by many different data exchange solutions. Using this kind of solution causes the data exchange incompatibility. This paper deals with different ways in informatics connection of all of the components in robot integrated manufacturing system. Design/methodology/approach: Incompatibility is a result of usage many different communication systems between components in lathe center. The way of mutual signal connections were the target of researches. Findings: As a result of scientific work, the universal and compatible informatics connection system of the robot lathe center was created. Research limitations/implications: The project of the data exchange system is confined to PROFIBUS DP lan. Practical implications: The result of the researches was developing a technical element choice procedure of the data exchange depending on transport means quantity and system composition in the robot lathe system. Originality/value: This is a brand new paper, which describes internal systems of data exchange in robot integrated manufacturing system in example of automatic lathe center. Keywords: Robotics; Mechatronics; Technological devices and equipment; Profibus DP The continuous market economy development and the tendency to shortening the product life cycle cause constant incensement of requirements in the enterprise competitive. To assure the manufactured product competitiveness, there is necessary to reduce the production costs and, simultaneously, assure the highest quality of the produced elements, what is very important for short batches. The necessity of the frequent product line changes causes the development in flexible production systems. The robot is a universal transport facility, which is used in integrated manufacturing systems, because of the necessity in assuring automatic elements travel in flexible work centre. A very important feature of robot integrated manufacturing systems is productive component varieties, which create the system structure (working machines, robot, conveyors, warehouses, etc.). The obvious result of such state is informative incompatibility in steering of the control systems, which has influence on the range of possible collaboration between those systems. In every flexible
