Assembly of Electronic Products
The assembly of small parts by robot dates to the mid 1970’s to the joint development of a precision jointed-arm robot by Unimation, Inc., the first and largest maker of robots in the United States, and General Motors. This joint effort produced the Unimate PUMA robot, which stands for “Programmable Universal Machine for Automation.” PUMA robots are manufactured in three series by Unimation, and are the most common robot in use in the United States for assembly application. The PUMA robots are shown in Figure 1.
