Manufacturing Cost of Robot Structures with Tolerance Calculated on the View of Kinetic Response and that of Technology
Robot-type structures have many different methods to calculate tolerances, the results of these methods are not the same and therefore the manufacturing costs and processing technology are not identical. This paper presents two points of view to calculate different robot structure tolerances and then show reasonable methods to apply in practice. The basis of calculating tolerances from the view of structural kinetic response and the view of manufacturing technology is presented. Calculated results are documented on the same robot with the same required accuracy. Then the comparison of manufacturing costs will be made to identify the more suitable option. The results of this paper are suggestions for calculating similar structures effectively for those interested.
