For courses in two- and four-year colleges in Introduction to Robotics, Manufacturing Automation, or Production Design. This text addresses the use of robots for flexible automation from a manufacturing systems viewpoint. It begins with what industrial robots were and how they were integrated into an automated manufacturing system. Emphasis is placed on the hardware and software that support the implementation of automated work cells and manufacturing systems. *NEW - West Electric case study now moved to its own chapter with a total of 55 case study problems, magnifies the importance of the case as a final capstone project that can be addressed near the end of the course to tie the concepts of the entire text together. Allows for greater instructor flexibility by allowing those who prefer to use the case in small increments at the end of each chapter can do so. *One major case in Ch. 12 plus two smaller case studies in Ch. 3 and numerous smaller cases linked to specific robot applications in Ch. 9 - The West Electric case study is keyed to a videotape (purchased separately) of the manual production systems in a production sequence, provides students with a real life view of how rob

The first book to combine all of the various topics relevant to low-cost automation. Practical approach covers methods immediately applicable to industrial problems, showing how to select the most appropriate control method for a given application, then design the necessary circuit. Focuses on the control circuits and devices (electronic, electro-mechanical, or pneumatic) used in small- to mid-size systems. Stress is on on-off (binary) control as opposed to continuous feedback (analog) control. Discusses well-known procedures and their modifications, and a number of original techniques and circuit design methods. Covers ``flexible automation,'' including the use of microcomputers.

This comprehensive textbook covers in detail the principal programmable automation technologies used in industry - the building blocks from which all automated manufacturing is developed. It is a one-stop source for developing CNC, robotics, and PLC programming skills, is replete with numerous examples, and it identifies and discusses readily available simulation software to experiment with. The text is primarily intended for undergraduate engineering technology students. Besides, anyone with a technical background and a general understanding of manufacturing and manufacturing processes will find this text useful, as well as to those who wish, simply, to study and understand the use of these technologies The text is organized into four sections. Section One is introductory: Chapter 1 provides some background on manu-facturing and defines programmable automation. Chapter 2 explains calculation methods used to justify automation expenditures, as motivated by productivity concepts. Section Two covers computer numerical control: Chapter Chapter 3 introduces CNC technology, Chapter 4 discusses CNC programming, and Chapter 5 addresses CNC simulation. Robotics is covered in Section Three: Chapter 6 introduces robotics technology and Chapter 7 goes over both robotics programming and simulation. Section Four addresses PLCs: Chapter 8 introduces PLCs and Chapter 9 covers programming and simulation of PLCs. Finally, Chapter 10 concludes the text with a discussion of how all three technologies are brought together to create programmable automated workstations and work cells.

If there exists a single term that summarizes the key to success in modern industrial automation, the obvious choice would be integration. Integration is critical to aligning all levels of an industrial enterprise and to optimizing each stratum in the hierarchy. While many books focus on the technological components of enterprise information systems, Integration Technologies for Industrial Automated Systems is the first book to present a comprehensive picture of the technologies, methodologies, and knowledge used to integrate seamlessly the various technologies underlying modern industrial automation and information systems. In chapters drawn from two of Zurawski's popular works, The Industrial Communication Technology Handbook and The Industrial Information Technology Handbook, this practical guide offers tutorials, surveys, and technology overviews contributed by experts from leading industrial and research institutions from around the world. The book is organized into sections for cohesive and comprehensive treatment. It examines e-technologies, software and IT technologies, communication network-based technologies, agent-based technologies, and security in detail as well as their role in the integration of industrial automated systems. For each of these areas, the contributors discuss emerging trends, novel solutions, and relevant standards. Charting the course toward more responsive and agile enterprise, Integration Technologies for Industrial Automated Systems gives you the tools to make better decisions and develop more integrated systems.

Die Arbeit hat sich im letzten Jahrzehnt weiter verändert. Bereits in 50 Jahren werden weniger als 10 Prozent der Bevölkerung ausreichen, um alle Güter und Dienstleistungen bereitzustellen. Die Konsequenzen für die sozialen Sicherungssysteme sind dramatisch, soziale Konlikte scheinen unvermeidlich. Dass "es nicht mehr genug Arbeit für alle geben wird" erkannte Jeremy Rifkin bereits in seinem Weltbesteller Das Ende der Arbeit - und seine Thesen sind heute aktueller denn je. In der Neuausgabe des in 16 Sprachen übersetzten Bestsellers entwickelt Rifkin seine radikalen Vorschläge weiter und zeigt mit gewohntem wirtschaftlichen und politischen Sachverstand, wie wir verhindern können, dass uns die Arbeit ausgeht.
