The paper focuses on the stiffness modeling of heavy industrial robots with gravity compensators. The main attention is paid to the identification of geometrical and elastostatic parameters and calibration accuracy. To reduce impact of the measurement errors, the set of manipulator configurations for calibration experiments is optimized with respect to the(More)
Tool Condition Monitoring (TCM) systems can improve productivity and ensure workpiece quality, yet, there is a lack of reliable TCM solutions for complex and flexible industrial manufacturing. TCM methods which include the characteristics of the cut seem to be particularly suitable for these demanding applications. In the first section of this paper, three(More)
The paper is devoted to the elastostatic calibration of industrial robots, which are used for precise machining of large-dimensional parts made of composite materials. In this technological process, the interaction between the robot and the workpiece causes essential elastic deflections of the manipulator components that should be compensated by the robot(More)
The paper focuses on the calibration of elastostatic parameters of spatial anthropomorphic robots. It proposes a new strategy for optimal selection of the measurement configurations that essentially increases the efficiency of robot calibration. This strategy is based on the concept of the robot test-pose and ensures the best compliance error compensation(More)
The paper presents the compliance errors compensation technique for industrial robots, which are used in milling manufacturing cells. under external loading, which is based on the non-linear stiffness model. In contrast to previous works, it takes into account the interaction between the milling tool and the workpiece that depends on the end-effector(More)
The paper deals with the problem of compliance errors compensation in robotic-based milling. Contrary to previous works that assume that the forces/torques generated by the manufacturing process are constant, the interaction between the milling tool and the workpiece is modeled in details. It takes into account the tool geometry, the number of teeth, the(More)
The paper deals with geometric calibration of industrial robots and focuses on reduction of the measurement noise impact by means of proper selection of the manipulator configurations in calibration experiments. Particular attention is paid to the enhancement of measurement and optimization techniques employed in geometric parameter identification. The(More)
The paper focuses on the accuracy improvement of geometric and elasto-static calibration of industrial robots. It proposes industry-oriented performance measures for the calibration experiment design. They are based on the concept of manipulator test-pose and referred to the end-effector location accuracy after application of the error compensation(More)
The paper is devoted to geometric and elastostatic calibration of industrial robot for milling application. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of the experimental results and enhancement identification routines. In contrast to other works, the identification results have been validated using separate set of measurements that were not used in(More)
