State of the art on industrial robot systems for extreme environments. KMB-project: Next Generation Robotics for Norwegian Industry

Sammendrag

Robots are increasingly being introduced into new application areas and they can substitute high-cost manual labor in 4D (dirty, dull, distant or dangerous) environments. This can contribute to a reduction of production costs and improved environment, health and safety (EHS) issues, as well as growth in a global market. More and more industries see the benefit of replacing manual labor in extreme environments with robots. However, extreme environments can be tough on any equipment including robot manipulators. Many manufactures produce robots specialized for extreme environments and this report aims at giving an overview of these robotic systems for such environments. These environments include Ex-zones, high and low temperatures, and environments which require a high IP rating on equipment. Moreover, a short overview of some robot tools for use in such environments is also given.   This report is written in the KMB-project Next Generation Robotics for Norwegian Industry.  The main objective of the KMB-project is to: “Develop enabling robotics technology that meets Norwegian industry’s need for robotic solutions for competitiveness and increased safety and efficiency for targeted applications.” One key aspect regarding this objective is robotic technologies for extreme environments.
