Title: MAINTENANCE AND CONTROL OF AN INDUSTRIAL ROBOT SERIES UNIMATE 2300
Author: Mostafa, Abdalmageed
Abstract: In 1997 the management of an industrial complex bought six industrial robots to be used for carrying heavy loads on its various factories. They were secondhand and no body knows how to operate them. Great efforts were done by the complex maintenance engineers to repair these robots by contacting the manufacturer. Unfortunately they made in USA, by UNIMATE Company and for politic reasons the connection was cut. The problem was to study how they work; it was a problem because there was only one source for information, the attached manual. In addition to the manual you must take a course in UNIMATE institute to be able to just operate the robot and carryout the periodic maintenance. So, to repair the original system or change it you will face many difficulties, starting from the spare parts until the required software. Therefore, from the beginning our opinion was to change the old control system, in spite of that we try to repair the old system but we failed. The next step was to focus our efforts on operating the robot manually, new problems appear here, the type and amount of the input signal and to which terminals it must be supplied .All the work was done on one robot and we succeeded in operating it. A manual control panel was designed Finally a general design is introduced to the new control system in which we use the microcontroller. We introduce both the structure of the new system and the algorithm which can be used to program the microcontroller.
Description: One of the great objectives of this project is to build a connection line between the university and the important Industrial corporations in the Sudan. The project also aims to get use of the unused robots by first applying all experiments and tests on one of them; if the tests succeed they can be generalized to other robots. There is another special aim of the project is that it provides a good chance to deal with work environment.
