Notes and Outline

In this series, I might go back and improve posts to make the entire series more coherent.   Of course, this post will be updated as I post more sections.

Here is my outline for what I plan to cover.  Since I’m writing some of the material as I go, the end result might be a bit different.

  • Why use an industrial robot: the one page version
  • Industrial robot resources
  • Methods of motion
  • Industrial controller overview (PLC, PACs, motion controllers, robot controllers)
  • What’s good about industrial robot controllers
  • Industrial robot alternatives
