All rights reserved. 2007 Short paper 87 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 manufacturing system there is possible to select the different streams flowing through particular elements of the system. Besides material and energetic streams, the most important stream flowing through the flexible manufacturing system is information stream [12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 19]. The analysis of the mutual signal connections in the robot manufacturing system carried through all of the elements in organizing structure, which consists in two FANUC ARCMate 100iB manipulators [9], collaborating with EMCO Concept 1.±±InTRoduCTion 2.±±the±STRuCTuRe±of±The±RoBoT± inTegRaTed±laThe±CenTeR

Short paper 88 D. Reclik, G. Kost, J. Świder TURN155 numerical lathe with the SIMENS SINUMERIC 840D controller [1, 2, 4, 10] and the FLEXLINK plate conveyor with SEW drive, controlled by MOVIDRIVE INVERTER MDX61B0005-5A3-4-00 inverter (fig. 1) [5, 6, 7]. The flexible lathe center is included in the input and output warehouses, the station to the elements reorientation and the security circuit (light curtains and security mats). Fig. 1 shows the analyzed work center. The robot controllers are provided with system software, the standard 48 channel I/O card (input/output) of the robot and, additionally, 32 input and 32 output digital cards [9] about positive logic with current protection on 0.5A level (AID32D and AOD32D card) [18]. Fig. 1. The robot integrated lathe center: EMCO ConceptTURN 155 (1), FANUC ARCMate 100iB (2), FLEXLINK plate conveyor with SEW MOVIDRIVE INVERTER MDX61B0005- 5A3-4-00 (3), input, reorganize and output magazine (4, 5, 6) To make the collaboration possible between the robot system and the numerical machine, there is necessary to obtain opportunities of extorting operations, which are connected with the working process. Those operations are e.g. opening and closing the door, closing and opening the lathe chuck jaws and also shifting and removing the tailstock head. The realization of
