Temperature Analysis of ABB Robot Servo Drive with Respect to Programming Methods - (A Preventive Maintenance Method in Manufacturing)

T. Prabaharan | B. Saravanan [2]


Abstract: The study is made on the amount of Heat generated in servo drive of ABB Robot 1410 to perform the same task of Pick & Place by two main methods of commands & with different program parameters. The Heat generation of more than 120 in servo drives can lead to inaccuracy & fault in servo drives [3]. The study analyses the optimal program code that minimizes the Heat Generated. The ABB Robot is programmed using RAPID Language. This RAPID language has MoveL & MoveJ commands to move the Robot arm to perform the tasks. MoveL command moves the Robot Arm along a straight line while MoveJ command moves the Robot Arm along the joint. The MoveL command with higher Velocity & lesser error Zone induces more Heat than the MoveJ command with lower Velocity & higher error Zone. The temperature recorded is statistically analyzed to get valid inferences. The optimal code that completes the task in a shorter time with less heat generation and prevents the chance for maintenance is suggested in this paper
