Contents: This publication is a professional quality DVD video introducing and demonstrating various fixtureless, machine intelligent robotic assembly and joining solutions (also shown in slow motion video) using robot-integrated vision and force sensing. The in-depth technical interview and demonstrations also illustrate some robot control, cell networking and vision system programming related aspects of lean, flexible, and reconfigurable assembly cells using smart FANUC robots. Due to the many innovative and mind-triggering ideas shown and discussed, this DVD is also excellent for undergraduate / graduate education and research. (See more about these methods and technologies in Professor Ranky's Library.)
