A new robot system has been introduced which was designed to seal the seams of car body panels. The system has nine degrees of freedom, and includes the following features: (1) A seam tracking servo using a solid-state TV camera is mounted at the robot hand to compensate for the seam deviations. (2) The robot arm is equipped with a flexible mechanism at the wrist to provide a wide working range for the seal nozzle. (3) A two axis orthogonal robot carrier is provided to make the robot follow the work on an indexed conveyor during the sealing operation. This paper deals with the structure and operation of the system and presents test results obtained on a sealing line.
