Fault diagnosis methods for industrial robots:


Alarm information: Industrial robots usually automatically send out alarm messages when problems occur, which can guide maintenance personnel in finding the cause of the fault.


Observation of operation status: Observe the operation status of the robot, including parameters such as movement speed, position, torque, temperature, etc., and compare them with normal values to determine if there is a fault.

Check the circuit board and connecting lines: Check if the circuit board and connecting lines are damaged or loose, and if so, replace or re fix them.


Manual operation test: By manually operating the robot's movement, it detects whether the functions of various parts are normal, such as whether the joint movement is smooth, whether the end effector is flexible, and whether the sensor is accurate.


Maintenance Log: Records the maintenance history of the robot, including information on fault types, maintenance processes, and processing results, in order to quickly diagnose and resolve similar faults.

Maintenance methods for industrial robots:


Cleaning and maintenance: Regularly clean the surface and internal components of the robot to prevent the accumulation of dust, grease, and other substances from affecting the performance and lifespan of the robot.


Replace vulnerable parts: Regularly replace the robot's vulnerable parts, such as sensors, motors, reducers, etc., to ensure the normal operation of the robot.


Adjustment and calibration: Regularly adjust and calibrate the robot to ensure its accuracy and stability.
