Control Problems and Devices in Manufacturing Technology 1980 presents the proceedings of the 3rd IFAC/IFIP Symposium on Control Problems and Devices in Manufacturing Technology, held in Budapest, Hungary, on October 22–25, 1980. This book discusses the increasing use of robots in both machining and assembly. Organized into 49 chapters, this compilation of papers begins with an overview of the development in computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing. This text then explores the application of computers to the automation of manufacturing processes that have resulted in great progress. Other chapters consider the theoretical aspects and devices concerning material handling, machine control, automatic measurement, and inspection. This book discusses as well the significant roles of numerically controlled machine-tools and robots in the manufacturing system. The final chapter deals with identification and optimal operation of cyclic mechanisms. This book is a valuable resource for control and plant engineers as well as for control system designers.
