Reduction of energy consumption is important for reaching a sustainable future. This paper presents a novel method for optimizing the energy consumption of robotic manufacturing systems. The method embeds detailed evaluations of robots' energy consumptions into a scheduling model of the overall system. The energy consumption for each operation is modeled(More)

Industrial Robotics (IR) may be envisaged as the key technology to keep the manufacturing industry at the leading edge. Unfortunately, at the current state-of-the-art, IR is intrinsically energy intensive, thus compromising factories sustainability in terms of ecological footprint and economic costs. Within this scenario, this paper presents a new framework(More)
This paper quantitatively reports about a practical method to improve both position accuracy and energy efficiency of Servo-Actuated Mechanisms (SAMs) for automated machinery. The method, which is readily applicable on existing systems, is based on the “smart programming” of the actuator trajectory, which is optimized in order to lower the(More)
Article Information Abstract Purpose: Robotic workcells provide high flexibility and reconfigurability, cost effectiveness and user friendly programming for many industrial applications but still lack in accuracy, so important fields of application such as mechanical machining are currently covered by very expensive and rigid systems (machining centers).(More)
